PEI 10-Groups provide a format for executives of noncompeting distributor, service and construction, and affiliate member companies to meet, exchange ideas and gain new information in small, informal groups. Each 10-Group is comprised of executives representing companies from the same PEI membership division that are about the same size and engaged in the same type of operation.
Groups usually meet twice a year and pay their own expenses. These groups have been so well received that members have compared the value of their involvement in a 10-Group with having a panel of consultants on staff. So successful is the 10-Groups idea that it was recognized in The Wall Street Journal and has been duplicated by other associations.

Quotes from PEI 10 Group Members:
It has helped me find ways to reduce expenses by following the lead of others that have faced similar issues before me. I have a better understanding of what it takes to grow my business by learning from bigger companies than mine. And it always reminds me that two heads are better than one, and 10 are even better yet. Teamwork works!
- Ben Stallings, Fatboy Electric
It can be pretty lonely at times operating your business, just you against a bunch of competitors. Are you sure you're doing everything you can to improve and grow? Being a part of a 10-Group can give you affirmation that you're on the right track and help you when you're not. And you might even make some friends along the way.
- Steve Trabilsy, Stenstrom Petroleum Service Group
For me, being a 10-Group member made it possible to not only survive, but also to thrive and grow the business. My 10-Group members openly shared their knowledge about the industry and have continuously provided coaching and mentoring to this very day.

The biggest benefit I have experienced in being a member of a PEI 10-Group is the sharing of best practices for dealing with business challenges that we all face day to day. The open dialogue and the experiences of the combined group is invaluable. And the relationships I have forged over the years with fellow members are both personally and professionally rewarding.
