The business executives who established CED in 1942 focused on the public interest through a pragmatic business lens. Today, CED Members make this same commitment to represent the reasoned, nonpartisan voice of business on major public policy issues.

Our Members are chairs, CEOs and senior executives of major corporations; university and college presidents; former corporate leaders; and leaders of prominent NGOs.

Members determine CED’s annual priority issues and lead subcommittees that produce policy statements with research findings and recommendations for reform. These policy statements are coupled with strong outreach efforts throughout the country and abroad - to achieve tangible impact at the local, state and national levels. CED has a passionate staff who organize and help lead the goals and efforts of the Members.
