What our members have to say

I came across Chief of Staff Network when considering the CoS role for the first time and found the content about the role was so helpful, I immediately became a member when I officially started the position. The content and connections continued to be invaluable throughout my entire CoS journey, so much so that I was able to work myself out of the job and into a founder role faster than I anticipated. Highly recommend!

How much does membership cost?

Chief of Staff Medium Blogs Link

All memberships are annual subscriptions. A 1-year membership costs $739 per year but may be paid monthly. We believe that investing in accelerating your career is one of the most meaningful investments that you can make.

Can I get reimbursed by my company?

Chief of Staff Medium Blogs Link

Many of our members’ companies view this cost as a learning and development investment for their Chief of Staff. We will work with you and your principal on this proposal to have some or all of the membership cost expensed.

How does the application process work?

Chief of Staff Medium Blogs Link

The first step is to submit an application. This helps us to get to know you better and understand your goals. We ask every new applicant for a referral from an existing member. This has helped maintain an environment of trust and candidness. Chances are if you know another Chief of Staff, they are probably already part of the community! You can still apply without a referral, but we do weigh this in our application. 

If we think you’ll be a good fit, a member of our team will reach out to schedule a 20 minute phone call with you. We always have more high-quality applicants than we have spaces for new members, so you may be placed on our waitlist until we have a spot for you.

How much time should I expect to invest to get the most out of the Network?

Chief of Staff Medium Blogs Link

We understand that everyone’s personal and professional lives can be unpredictable. If you’re participating in a CoS Pod or Development Track, you should expect to spend 2-3 hours per week on the material and live sessions for the duration of the program. All other roundtables and events are optional to join and we record many of our sessions for future reference!
