                                       The Partnership has a Proven Track Record for Success. Since
                                       the inception in 1994, the Tampa Bay Partnership has proven to be the
                                       region’s organization for business attraction marketing, public policy
advocacy, research and leadership. The CEO Direct program will engage participants in the Partnership’s Regional
Model for Prosperity and the four focus areas we are working on, including 1) the Regional Business Plan for
Tampa Bay; 2) quality places (livable communities & transportation); 3) public policy & advocacy; and 4) a
broader advocacy and leadership model.

                                      Your Return on Investment. By participating in the CEO Direct
                                      program, you will gain a thorough understanding of how the Tampa Bay
                                      Partnership fits into the regional model for economic development and the
                                      process for handling regional issues. You will learn from the region’s
                                      leading executives about the issues affecting our regional economic
                                      competitiveness, and be given the opportunity to collaborate, engage,
                                      discuss and debate these issues with fellow leaders.

Your Commitment. We understand the busy schedules you manage each
day as CEOs and Senior Level Management. While we will plan the year
with that in mind, we hope that you will find the time spent with the group
valuable, by gaining knowledge from the key influencing leaders in our
region and by being able to network with leaders who are genuinely
interested in supporting and influencing the regional agenda. To get the
most out of the program, we strongly encourage that you participate in at
least 75% of the programs throughout the year.
