This conference is a rare opportunity for CEOs to network and learn about their common commitments through their companies’ corporate societal engagement.

“We are pleased to see the Board of Boards conference consistently rated as one of the world’s top executive gatherings,” stated Charles Moore, Executive Director, CECP. “The designation speaks to the quality of the conversation and the caliber of our visionary guests and speakers.  2013 will be no less impressive and leading edge.”

Presented annually since 2000, these awards are juried by an independent Selection Committee that is comprised of representatives from across sectors and measured against Standards of Excellence including Partnerships, Innovation, Commitment to Measurement, and CEO Leadership. 

In recognition of ICPD, CECP members will ring The NYSE Closing Bell℠ at the New York Stock Exchange.
