This is what it entails:
Most committee meetings will be conducted by telephone, and that participation will not be too time burdensome; perhaps only an hour or so a month, although some months could be a little more, and others less. There will be 3-5 members per committee, although we are not limiting the size if many wish to participate. Membership is a good way, without too much time expended, to get to know other XPX members better, and to have a role in the leadership of the organization.

Announcing the Newly Launched Chicago Chapter of the Exit Planning Exchange!
The Exit Planning Exchange is a multi-disciplinary professional organization aimed at providing education and networking opportunities to those who serve private company owners. XPX members help owners build sustainable businesses and help them plan and execute successful exits.
Our members include bankers, investment bankers, lawyers, accountants, wealth advisors, management consultants, valuation experts, executive coaches, and insurance professionals. Our culture is one of cooperation and sharing of both knowledge and business.
XPX was founded nine years ago in Boston, and has grown with chapters in New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and now Chicago.
Our first event was on Wednesday September 14, from 7:30 am- 9:00 am at the Gleacher Center at 450 North Cityfront Plaza, next to the NBC Tower, and near the Tribune Building.
The featured speaker was Bruce Leech, Executive Director at DePaul University’s Coleman Entrepreneurship Center. And there will be ample networking opportunities for you to meet other professionals serving private companies, as well as to learn about XPX.
The most valuable part of my participation with XPX is the education about exit planning that I have received from attending meetings and from all the members. XPX is a very approachable group. Everyone is willing and interested in an exchange of ideas. I especially like the Power of Three which enables you to get to know other members better.
I really enjoy the small group interactions at XPX which is different from other organizations. I have also received an engagement from a XPX member.
XPX offers excellent content based seminars specifically geared towards professionals focusing on the sale or transition of a business. The diverse topics and membership provide strong networking opportunities. Both the targeted content and diverse membership, focusing on bringing advisors together as a team to help the client, help XPX stand out from other organizations.
