expand_more expand_less

The costs associated with Summit Junto Group retreats are not included in your membership fee. We do offer exclusive rates to the breathtaking locations Summit has access to through our Destination Directory.

As a Summit Junto member, you can utilize this Destination Directory for a Group retreat or for personal travel. In the near future, we will also be offering more casual local meetup events to members at no additional cost.

What is the time commitment of membership in Summit Junto?
expand_more expand_less

As a member of Summit Junto, you commit to participate in (2) 2-hour Forum meetings per month for the first 2 months. After the second month, we recommend that your group switches to a 2-hour meeting once per month. You also receive access to auxiliary programming opportunities exclusive to Summit Junto throughout the year.

What is the Orientation for Summit Junto? Is it required?
expand_more expand_less

Orientation for Summit Junto occurs at the virtual Opening Plenary associated with your Summit Junto Cohort. This Opening Plenary is required for participation in Summit Junto.

The Opening Plenary will set the tone for the year to come, establish expectations, onboard you to the new experience, and train you in what makes a successful Summit Junto member. In addition to setting proper expectations, the intention of this experience is to foster more connections outside of your smaller Summit Junto Group.

How does scheduling work with a Junto Group?
expand_more expand_less

Availability is one of many factors that we take into consideration when curating your Summit Junto Group. All professionally facilitated sessions will be held during specific times to accommodate our busy community.

We recommend that your Summit Junto Group honors a regular meeting cadence (e.g. the first Monday of every month) and will support you and your Group in identifying a cadence that works for all members as needed. 

When will my credit card be charged?

We collect your credit card details and charge the full membership after your registration has been confirmed. Your membership begins immediately, giving you access to virtual events and benefits. At this time, we also begin the curation process to get your Group paired as quickly as possible.

What factors do you account for when curating a Group?
expand_more expand_less

We’ve taken what we’ve learned over the last decade of gathering people and distilled it into our Summit Junto forum curation process. The results are highly-personalized advisory boards that create a unique environment for members to give each other tailored advice and genuine support. We take many factors into consideration when curating your personal board of advisors. Some include:

  • Industry & Interests - Groups are curated to ensure there is enough overlap to be effective and connected, yet different enough in order to grow from various viewpoints and areas of expertise. 

  • Stage of Career - The Summit Junto curation team does their best to ensure people of a similar stage in their profession are grouped together. The ability to network, empathize and intimately understand one another’s challenges is a key selling point for individuals. 

  • Schedule -  Similar availability in timezones which align. This is a vital aspect to the success of any Summit Junto Group.
