3 Scenarios for Becoming a C12 Chair

Pioneer a Market

We have identified hundreds of undeveloped markets as viable for a successful C12 practice. To launch in one of those new markets, a Principal Chair is responsible for purchasing a C12 franchise, retaining equity ownership while perpetually serving and maximizing the market to its full stewardship potential.

Join an Existing Team

The demand in the marketplace currently exceeds our capacity to serve. Dozens of cities and regions have openings for Chairs to join an established market. If owning a C12 franchise is not the best choice for you, you can join a team of Chairs with momentum but capacity constraints.

Succeed a Chair

Some of our Principal Chairs are ready, willing, or preparing to transition ownership of their C12 franchise. This presents an opportunity for a new Chair to purchase the business, continue serving current C12 members, and assume market stewardship and development responsibility.

As a C12 Chair, you take on a curator and facilitator role. C12 has a wealth of relevant and applicable content. Combine that with the diverse perspectives and experiences of the members around the table and you are leading an incredibly powerful experience. However, the Chair is not expected to be the sole expert, instructor, or the consultant in the meeting. Their responsibility is to orchestrate a high-performace, high-accountability experience backed by a proven format, world-class content, and the power of peers.

Can I make a professional income as a C12 Chair?

Principal Chairs who launch in a new market are independent business owners who purchase a C12 franchise by making an initial investment. C12 membership dues are a fee-for-service paid directly to the Chair monthly and a small portion of that is paid to C12HQ for ongoing resources, training, support, and materials. There are also opportunities for qualified candidates to join an existing team under their franchise or even purchase a franchise in a succession or retirement scenario. Most Chairs after 6-12 months of developing their Business Forums are making a professional income.
