Spousal Forums follow the same rules and structure as the members forums, and each group is ruled by a different Constitution that the forum creates together. This is a welcoming environment where spouses have the opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other. We discuss business, personal growth and family topics, and we also have fun!
What is it?
A safe environment where spouses have the opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other. We discuss business, personal growth and family topics, and we also have fun!
We follow the same rules and structure as the members’ forums, and each group is ruled by a different Constitution that the forum creates together.
We have retreats that are planned by each forum and can attend some of the EO events.
To be part of a group that provides unconditional support and helps you grow. A group of friends you can rely on, that accompany you through the ups and downs of life. A network that you can share your struggles and victories with and will go out of their way to lend you a hand.
Encouragement, accountability, diversity, experience, friendship, fun, tears and laughter are among the many things that we share as a group.
We are the spouses of EO members from different walks of life. Everything from entrepreneurs, house makers, managers, moms, business owners, realtors, you name it!
What does the time commitment look like?
Each forum meets once a month. Some of them go to dinner after the meeting and some have a social event besides the meeting. The duration of the meeting and the schedule is decided by each group.
We have a retreat once a year (some groups even do it twice a year!) that consists of a longer meeting, and most of us travel and spend several days together.
Going to the spa, hiking, white water rafting, skiing, horseback riding, and relaxing time at the beach are among the many things that we do for our retreats. This time allows for group bonding and experience sharing, making the forums stronger.
How do I get started?
It is not mandatory to join a spousal forum, but it is part of the dues that each member pays. If you want to understand first hand what these groups experience, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
I am incredibly thankful to have joined a spousal forum. At the very least, it dispelled some of the mystery surrounding member forum. More importantly, it’s been an enriching experience on many levels. I’ve gained invaluable and insightful perspective leading to personal growth; I’ve forged deep friendships; and it’s pushed me (in a good way) to regularly reflect upon and work towards my life goals. I am a better person because of my forum and I truly believe that all of my relationships have benefited as well.
Spousal forum has absolutely exceeded my expectations in so many ways. I have experienced personal growth, trust and a bond that I didn't know was possible. I have discovered leadership skills that I wasn't even aware I had. I love my forum members and know that we are all totally honest and supportive of each other without any judgment. I'm so thankful for my spousal forum!
Being new to Spousal Forum, I wasn't sure what to expect. However, since joining I can say it has been an incredible experience and, from our first meeting, it has proved to be beneficial and insightful. I was able to share on subjects that under day to day or even private circumstances I would still be reluctant to share. Going on retreat with our forum was an amazing bonding experience and I can't wait to begin planning the next one! There is so much to be gained by joining a spousal forum.
Being a part of EO Spousal Forum is an amazing and integral part of my life. I was skeptical at first - I didn’t want to be in a group of women that sit around and bitch about heir spouses, ha! I have personally and professionally grown these past three years, and I can directly credit our forum. Finding the right forum is SUPER important - you should feel supported, encouraged, and leave every meeting with a happy heart.
If you consider yourself a pro growth individual, who likes to challenge themselves to get out of their comfort zones with others meeting you on that level, I would say it's a must.
My favorite parts of forum (besides the awesome retreats) are experience sharing with a group of non-judgmental peers and the fact that I know if I have any type of emergency that all I have to do is send a text at ANY hour and know I will have a response as soon as possible. The ladies in my forum have my back, and I have theirs!
