See my ten part coverage from 2012. I wouldn’t miss this conference, nor should you. Please stop by and say hi at the event.
Corporate Directors Forum was founded in 1991. Its purpose is to help directors be better directors through education and peer networking. CDF’s core beliefs are that boards are strategic assets of corporations, education makes better directors, better directors make better boards and better boards make better corporations.
