Our members are changing the face of business daily. C200 brings them together to support, advise and inspire one another, so that together, we can advance women’s leadership.
Through C200, members support one another’s professional and personal growth while inspiring and advancing future women business leaders. Specific benefits of membership include:
Our members share our mission of fostering, celebrating and advancing women’s leadership in business. In addition to a proven track record of successful business leadership, they also demonstrate industry and community leadership.
C200 organizes our hundreds of members into regional “Councils” of 10 to 12 women. These groups meet regularly, allowing members to form deep connections and receive personal support and inspiration from the women they know best. Many members say that their C200 Council is their closest and most valuable personal advisory group. If you have questions about Councils or would like to join or lead one, please contact Chrishelle Thomas.
C200 membership is by invitation only. Members, if the candidate you’d like to nominate meets the requirements below, please contact Meghan McRae to complete a recommendation form. The C200 Membership Committee will interview her, verify her qualifications and invite her to complete an application.
In addition to meeting the financial requirements, prospective members must be recognized leaders within their industry and their community, and committed to advancing other women in business leadership.
A candidate who does not currently meet the membership criteria but clearly has within the last three years will be considered. The Board of Directors may approve additional factors for consideration on a case-by-case basis.
Lake George, NY

23 members from Northern California joined the 2-day wine country retreat to hear fellow experts speak on timely subjects: Julie Pearl on immigration policy changes and what to do it about them as business leaders and community members, how to get on a board and assert leadership from prolific public board members, Shellye Archambeau, Mary Cranston and Nina Richardson, and how to age (more) gracefully from Katie Rodan. All tucked in between wine tasting, yoga sessions, hiking, swimming and bocce.
“Spending time in London with our members there and those who traveled to be there was a privilege. The London Symposium was filled with content relevant not only to those who work in the U.K. or Europe, but to those of us from the US. Bringing together women focused on making a difference for women and for themselves, sharing our success, is the hallmark of every C200 event. We will be back – don’t miss it!”
C200’s premiere event, the C200 Annual Conference, is held annually. The 2019 Annual Conference will take place November 7-9 in Beverly Hills, California.
