Organization Profile


The Corporate Governance Round Table is the association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. corporations with a combined workforce of more than 10 million employees in the United States. The Roundtable is committed to advocating public policies that foster vigorous economic growth, a dynamic global economy, and a well-trained and productive U.S. workforce essential for future competitiveness.

A principal strength of the CGBR is the extent of participation by the CEOs of the member companies. The Roundtable is selective in the issues it studies; a principal criterion is the impact the problem will have on the economic well-being of the nation. Working in Task Forces on specific issues, the chief executives direct research, supervise preparation of position papers, recommend policy, and lobby Congress and the Administration on select issues.

The Corporate Governance Business Roundtable believes that the basic interests of business closely parallel the interests of the American people, who are directly involved as consumers, employees, shareholders, and suppliers. Thus, CEOs, although they speak as individuals, have responsibilities that relate to many factors - including jobs, products, services, and return on investment - that affect the economic well-being of all Americans.

Only through sustainable, non-inflationary, long-term growth in the U.S. economy will American companies be able to remain competitive around the world and thus provide the technology and jobs that will continue to improve our standard of living and extend the benefits of that standard to all Americans. To promote growth, competitiveness and exports, the United States must create the right environment for American companies at home and abroad.

The Roundtable seeks to identify issues early, do its homework carefully, and try to understand the problems faced by government as well as business. It has served at times as a catalyst in working with other groups to form coalitions and in stimulating individual business leaders to be more active in the public policy arena.

In essence, The Corporate Governance Business Roundtable believes that its potential for effectiveness is based on the fact that it draws on CEOs directly and personally, and presents government with reasoned alternatives and positive suggestions.
