Launched in July 2022, the GC Exchange is for GC members of the Vanguard Network to hold regular dialogue with peers around immediate critical issues, and a combination of problem solving and networking in a smaller group with strong follow up.

This series of Executive Exchanges is designed to enable GCs in various disciplines an opportunity to meet with their peers in regularly scheduled sessions, to discuss common issues, share solutions, and network.
