Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the Council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of Council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.

  • Collective problem solving that puts your issue on the agenda
  • Benchmarking through regular surveys of Council members about relevant company practices
  • Multifunctional insights generated by the wealth of perspectives gathered from 125+ Councils (covering more than 50 functions) that work together across geographies
  • Virtual communities that extend learning opportunities through a variety of online forums and other resources

The Council provides a unique opportunity to have discussions on emerging communication issues with peer companies. What I have found is that many of my current challenges and opportunities are shared by my colleagues in other companies. The Council provides the forum for rich interaction, common problem solving and issue discussion.

Our Mission

All proceeds support The Conference Board's educational, scientific, and not-for-profit mission.

Why join the Corporate Communications Strategy II Council?

My company’s always been very supportive of training— seminars, plus we have a robust internal training mechanism. But there’s a point in your career where the returns on that diminish. I tend not to do any other training or education now beyond my Council membership.

I report to the General Counsel at our company. He’s a man who doesn’t like to sit in meetings. But he’s a member at The Conference Board. He said his experiences with The Conference Board are the only impactful and actionable professional experiences he’s ever found.

Michelle Goret, VP Communication, Cinatas
