The Forum Sponsors

The Business Roundtable

The Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers who examine public issues that affect the economy and develop positions that seek to reflect sound economic and social principles. Established in 1972, the Roundtable was founded in the belief that business executives should take an increased role in the continuing debates about public policy.

The Business Roundtable's construction function—its only industry-specific activity—fulfills a unique role in U.S. industry. It is the only organized effort by purchasers of construction that works to improve the industry's safety, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. In doing so, it also serves as a balance wheel between major purchasers of construction services and the union and nonunion sectors of the industry. The size of Roundtable member companies, and the breadth of the industries they represent, make it possible for the Roundtable to perform this role. Further information on The Business Roundtable is available on the Internet at http://www.brtable.org.
