GEO Issuer Advisory Council
GEO is proud to announce the launch of the Issuer Advisory Council. This Council is comprised of a distinguished group of geographically-diverse corporate issuer members who have generously volunteered their time to provide broad vision and feedback to GEO. GEO Advisory Council

Among other things, the Issuer Advisory Council will:

  • Serve as an advisory body to GEO regarding issuer needs, marketplace developments, etc.;
  • Preview, test and provide feedback about new and existing service offerings; and
  • Provide a forum for GEO to build and strengthen relationships with our corporate issuer members.

  • Overall strategic direction of the organization.
  • New and existing member service offerings and fee structure.
  • Guidance and opinions on conference locations.
  • Types of best-in-class resources for corporate issuer members.
  • Periodic review and report on effectiveness of the Issuer Advisory Council.
