Opening and Closing Bell on Wall Street
On Friday, March 1, representatives from the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher, will visit the New York Stock Exchange and ring The Opening Bell to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the CFR Corporate Program.
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 the CFR members-only website. With the guidance of James W. Owens, former chairman and chief executive officer of Caterpillar, Inc., and current chair of CFR's Committee on Corporate Affairs, the Corporate Program offers a multitude of benefits for executives at its approximately 175 member companies.
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students, civic and religious leaders, and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries.
