Voting Members

Voting members are comparable to shareholders in a for-profit organization, except they do not have an ownership interest in The Conference Board, which is a not-for-profit corporation. Most voting members are either the current or retired Chief Executive Officer of a member company. The Conference Board Voting Members support our corporate governance by participating in an annual proxy for our Board of Trustees; there are no other obligations for the role at this time.
