Membership in the CFR Corporate Program is tailored to meet the needs of your organization.
CFR's Corporate Program provides a unique forum for business leaders to interact with noted thinkers and practitioners in government, policy, academia, and business through invitations to exclusive events, direct engagement with CFR experts, and virtual access to our members-only website. With the guidance of James W. Owens, chairman and chief executive officer emeritus (2004-2010) of Caterpillar, Inc., and current chair of CFR's Committee on Corporate Affairs, the Corporate Program offers a multitude of benefits for executives across your organization.
In addition to being able to participate in our annual Corporate Conference, corporate members regularly receive invitations and opportunities to join us when CFR hosts high-profile speakers from around the world.
Recent visiting leaders include:
Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, discusses the IMF's changing role amid growing concerns over U.S. and Eurozone debt with Tom Glocer, Chief Executive Officer of Thomson Reuters.
