On a personal basis, The Conference Board gives you the chance to meet people who you can exchange ideas with and get help to be more effective in your community.
Hollis W. Hart, President (Retired), International Finance Management, Citi
Every day we deal with our own issues and our own industry focus, in our small businesses or large business. The Conference Board brings you an opportunity to broaden your horizons. It gives you the opportunity to tap into people who have more experience and a different view than you; which I think is invaluable as a leader in my own organization.
Vicki Pomponi, Vice President Auto Sales Support Operations, American Honda Motor Company, Inc
I have respected The Conference Board for many, many years for its economic work, as well as the functional specialties that it goes into very deeply. They are able to get business people from all over the country, from all different industries, to share among themselves their concerns about the issues facing the country currently.
Joseph E Kasputys, CEO, Economic Ventures
The Conference Board establishes a forum where other like-minded people want to be engaged and productive in our societies. It’s a chance to exchange ideas and work together.
Ron Marshall, CEO, Claire’s Stores Inc
The Conference Board gets business together to talk about the issues that they share. I think they produce good, thought provoking pieces, and they gather a lot of data that we all rely on. There are a lot of things about The Conference Board that contribute to business’ ability to be a productive, good corporate citizens; to constructively look at business issues and to help think how we can make the situation better.
Lydia I Beeb, Corporate Secretary & Chief Governance Officer, Chevron Corporation
CED fills an important role in American life and if it did not exist, we would have to create it. CED brings together business leaders espousing carefully-reasoned, fact-based investigations of the economic and social issues of the day, conducted civilly and with mutual respect by a broad spectrum of well-informed observers seeking feasible solutions—short range, interim and long term—to complex questions that defy “quick fixes” or polemical responses.
Daniel Rose, Chairman, Rose Associates, Inc.
The Conference Board offers a world vision with a global network and will continue to help its members and society at-large understand and deal with the most challenging issues of our time.
