CROA Convenes Corporate Excellence for Government Roundtable and CR Magazine Announces Best Corporate Citizens in Government Contracting list on June 30th

Please join us for:

Corporate Responsibility Best Practices Webcast
9am ET on July 21st 2010 Online & at the
New York Stock Exchange

It's too bad Corporate Responsibility professionals have to make it all up as they go along.  Right?  Wrong.  There may not be a text book, but there are people who have traveled this road before you.  Earlier this year, the Corporate Responsibility Officers Association (CROA) and NYSE Euronext fielded the largest survey of corporate responsibility best practices ever conducted, sending surveys to every publicly traded company on the NYSE Euronext indexes.  650 companies responded.  Now you can hear from some of the best in one hands-on Webcast.

During this live and interactive Webcast you will access the data and hear from some of the largest, most responsible companies in the world hosted by the CROA and NYSE Euronext.  Public registration opens June 15th. 

To preregister please contact Vince Albergato.

The CROA's European Steering Group will convene once more to progress the CROA’s European strategy, specifically on the implications of CR for the IT industry and Human Resources function.
