The Colorado Springs Executives Association was formed in 1960, the first meeting actually taking place on July 1st with thirty-six members on record. The Association has been actively functioning ever since as the city's oldest business networking group. CSEA, or Execs as it is popularly called, was organized and still functions for only one purpose: business. It is not a philanthropic, service, or social organization. Its purpose is to act as a mechanism to help its members in their businesses.
