What the Company Officer Symposium is NOT


The Symposium is NOT a “top down” lecture series of Chiefs telling Company Officers what they are doing wrong. This is a peer to peer event where COs from other areas of the state will lead attendees in discussions of their experience, ideas that work and mutual challenges all COs face.
