*Retired President Eligibility

CIC welcomes retired presidents who wish to participate in the Presidents Institute and remain involved in discussions of professional matters with former colleagues. Having retired presidents at the Institute is of value to current presidents, especially those who are relatively new to their positions, as an additional source of advice from more experienced colleagues. Retired presidents who work for a sponsoring firm, however, should participate in the Presidents Institute as one of the firm’s representatives, not as a retired president. Retired presidents who work for a firm that is eligible to be a sponsor, but is not, may not participate in the Institute.

Questions about eligibility to register as a retired president should be directed to David G. Brailow, CIC vice president for development, at or (202) 466-7230.
