New Peer Groups Recently Launched

Business leaders don't always have the support system they need in their roles. That’s especially true in roles like human resources or being a CEO, where a high level of trust and confidentiality is key.

MTS strives to offer a space for leaders in several different roles to share their experiences, ideas, and feedback with others in similar positions in our peer groups. We have had success with our HR Peer Group and CEO Peer Group and recently launched a CFO Peer Group and a Supply Chain Management Peer Group.

Each peer group has monthly meetings that are facilitated by subject-matter experts and include roundtable discussions driven by member interests. The groups are designed to be small (under 15 people) so members can effectively network with others in similar job roles and foster strong relationships. Peer group members don't have to be working at manufacturers to be eligible.

Currently, peer group meetings are typically held in Sioux Falls but opportunities for meetings held in other locations arise from time to time. Peer group participants are from a variety of locations including Aberdeen, Mitchell, Watertown, De Smet, Tea, Sioux Falls, and Worthington.

Group Member Attributes

No matter the peer group, we are looking for professionals who:

  • have challenges in their organization that would like insight from the group
  • are willing and able to share ideas, knowledge, and feedback
  • are committed to notable, strategic, and organizational growth
  • are seeking professional growth opportunities
  • are willing to address strategy over tactics
  • have ample experience to contribute to the development of other organizations
