20 Group Candidate Introduction Program

The Candidate Introduction Program (CIP) is designed to prepare potential 20 Group members for their first meeting by familiarizing them with meeting tools and group culture. With the aid of this program, candidates come well-prepared to fully participate in their first meeting and engage with their peers. CIP is a monthly support program that begins when the candidate is approved for meeting attendance and ends upon their acceptance into the group.

CIP benefits include a monthly, custom candidate composite featuring your operating data compared to the group average and NCM franchise-specific benchmarks, as well as group ranking, moderator-directed review of the candidate composite, the group's meeting agenda, and a profit trend analysis.
