At our annual meeting in March, Corporate Voices will be joined by three leaders of The Campaign to Fix the Debt for a lively discussion on the country’s debt crisis, the threat it poses to our global competitiveness and prosperity–and how U.S. companies must be involved in the solutions. The Campaign is a nonpartisan movement to put America on a better fiscal and economic path. It has been busy mobilizing key communities–including many prominent business leaders–and individuals from a variety of social, economic and political perspectives who want to see elected officials step up to solve our nation’s enormous fiscal challenges.
