Membership organizations all seem to have different models. Ours is to charge an option of low membership dues based on the size of company members lead. This way C-suite leaders and executives of smaller enterprises and non-profits can be part of Vanguard. We then charge additionally for events and programs based on their scale and complexity, and whether they are face-to-face or virtual.


This enables Vanguard to be very inclusive, and also to charge members only for the major program elements that they participate in.

CORE is for leaders of smaller companies with an annual revenue of $40M or less.

PREMIUM is for leaders of medium companies ($40M to $1B annual revenue) and leaders who are contributing individually.

PREMIUM PLUS is for leaders of large companies with an annual revenue of $1B or more.

CIRCLE is for members who remain part of our circle with minimum benefits. This is a complimentary membership (by invitation only).

NON-PROFIT organizations receive 20% off annual fees for any of the plans above.
