Corporate Directors Forum is a  San Diego-based, 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization founded in 1991. Its purpose is to help directors, and those who support them, build more effective boards through continuous learning and peer-networking.  We believe that boards of directors are strategic assets of corporations, education makes better directors, better directors make boards more effective, and more effective boards make better corporations.
