March 4, 2011 -- For the past 8 years, NYSE Euronext has invited CECP to ring the bell in honor of International Corporate Philanthropy Day (ICPD). As such, on Monday, February 28th, CECP and senior corporate contributions professionals participated in the Opening Bell ceremony, which not only marked the start of the day’s trading, but also officially kicked off CECP’s Board of Boards CEO Conference proceedings uptown at The McGraw-Hill Companies. As CECP’s representative at the NYSE, I wanted to share some reflections on the experience.
