CEOs, heads of office, and other select C-suite executives from member companies are invited to participate in quarterly meetings cohosted by Council president Ivo H. Daalder and board cochair Samuel C. Scott III. These members-only meetings provide an opportunity for business leaders to participate in timely, business-relevant global policy discussions and hear directly from the Council’s bench of experts. They also provide a platform to showcase executive leadership in a room of peers, customers, service providers, and clients. From NAFTA to national security, immigration to climate change – insights from these discussions offer companies the competitive edge they need to thrive in an increasingly global economy.
