This is always an exciting and busy time at Evanta as we reflect back on the previous year, while simultaneously getting ready to kick off 2024 with our communities and programs. In 2023, we hosted 420 in-person and virtual gatherings, facilitating more than 27,000 executive connections. 

We launched a new community in the Middle East region, hosting 100+ CIOs and CISOs at our inaugural Executive Summit there, and we added four communities for CFOs in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, DC.

Another highlight of 2023 was featuring Gartner analysts at our Evanta Executive Summits in select regions. We piloted a program to host analysts on topics selected by Evanta Governing Body Members in multiple communities and received highly positive feedback on their participation. 

In 2024, we are looking forward to welcoming members to an upcoming gathering in one of our 107 communities around the world. This year, members can access the MyEvanta app to stay up-to-date on everything happening in their community. MyEvanta enables community members to log in once, see what’s new and register for multiple programs at the same time. MyEvanta will become a one-stop shop for community members as we continue to add features and functionality to enhance peer connections between gatherings.

In addition to one-click registration, members can use the MyEvanta app to access Town Halls and Peer Roundtables online from anywhere. Onsite at our Inner Circle Dinners and Executive Summits, MyEvanta helps build peer connections easily with a personalized QR code for exchanging business cards. Community members can also customize their onsite engagements by learning more about upcoming sessions, creating their agendas, and selecting Peer-to-Peer Meetings in the MyEvanta app.

If you have not yet joined a community or participated in one of our C-level programs, I encourage you to check out how to apply. Membership in Evanta communities is complimentary, but executives must be approved in order to participate in our programs. 

Members tell us that they find value in connecting with other leading C-level executives from various industries and that they learn from their peers' experiences and gain insights into how they have tackled similar issues.

Here is what some of our current members say about joining a community: 

The value of the Evanta community is the community itself – the knowledge sharing, the camaraderie and the ability to learn from each other.”

Sean MacCarthy
VP of Analytics, Good Sam/Camping World

The biggest advantage to the Evanta community is getting involved with other CISOs and learning about the challenges they're facing and how they're able to overcome those challenges.”

Angela Williams
Global CISO, UL Solutions

I have a pretty broad network on my own. But bringing CISOs together within the Evanta community, it just makes connections easier. You find a lot of folks that you build relationships with, and they continue outside the conference.”

Tony Taylor
CISO, Land O'Lakes


As an Evanta community member, you gain access to private, invitation-only gatherings, peer-led sessions and content on critical priorities for your role, and a local network of true, C-level peers.

Currently, we are surveying members about their top priorities, opportunities and challenges in our annual Leadership Perspective Survey. We use this invaluable feedback to create all of the topics and agendas for upcoming programs in their respective communities. 

If you might find value in connecting with peers on your key business challenges, apply to join your local community or find an upcoming program near you on our calendar.
