Department Forums

Building on the success of our CEO chapters we created departmental working groups to support the leadership teams of our member companies. Our department groups meet quarterly and provide our members with a trusted space for inspiration, collaboration, knowledge sharing and peer support. We leverage the experience of our members, as well as trusted outside experts, to navigate the inherent challenges of growing successful mission-driven natural products companies. Participating teams have the opportunity to expand their knowledge base and to build trusted relationships with our other like-minded member companies.

We currently have the following department groups:
  • Administrative
  • Finance
  • Human Resources
  • Marketing
  • Operations
  • Sales

Our operations department forum is sponsored by Heffernan Insurance Brokers, one of the largest independent insurance brokerage firms in the United States. Find out more at
