History of the CEOs’ Network Forum
The CEOs’ Forum began as a meeting of city superintendents and directors of education in 1961 to exchange ideas and experiences to gain country-wide perspectives. As the context of education became more complex and the role played by the provinces expanded, the gathering was enriched by the inclusion of leaders of all types of schools. Participants value this event for the opportunity it provides to conduct open and confidential conversations with peers, for the establishment of collegial relationships and a network of professional peers across the country. country.
