CEO Luncheons

The CEO Luncheon series hosts C-level executives and other successful leaders within the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky community who share their personal and professional leadership experience. They provide insight to members on what it takes to climb the leadership ladder and provide a unique networking opportunity with prominent business executives as well as other young professionals. Legacy organizes two or more CEO Luncheons each year, which include a sit-down lunch for all members.

Inside Look

Legacy’s “Inside Look” is a series of events that offer a behind-the-scenes tour of local venues. Venues range from well-known businesses, local attractions, and other places of interest. Along with the tour, the guide relates the “inside” scoop about the venue and answers questions from Legacy members. The tour and discussion are followed by a networking happy hour at or near the venue with drinks and appetizers. This series connects Legacy members to the business community and to other young professionals in the region. Legacy organizes several Inside Look events per year and each event averages 30-40 attendees.


The Community Committee is responsible for planning and implementing community related projects. This committee looks for projects that will dramatically impact and improve the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky. Once projects are presented to the committee, members vote on which project they want to implement.

This committee’s current project is the Row and Run, an outdoor adventure race that consists of 3.1 miles of canoeing and 2.1 miles of running. Tasks of committee members include working with local governments, Coast Guard, and businesses for permits and permissions required to host the event, finding event sponsors, recruiting volunteers, marketing to potential participants and then implementing the plan to in order to host an organized, fun, and unique Row and Run!
