InterCEP Will Hold Multiple Forums with Key Stakeholders to Inform the Development of the Certification Program & an Integrated Business Case
September 5, 2007 2:32 PM
To inform both government activity and that of the ultimate accreditation body, InterCEP will start to convene targeted groups of key stakeholders to obtain their input on the accreditation and certification process and the integration of key business incentives. The majority of these topically focused forums will be held in advance of a general National Roundtable to be held at NYU in November. Each of these advance forums will address a different incentive area or business segment. The forums will include both virtual and onsite formats to make them more accessible to key stakeholders. The forums will seek to capture key issues and preliminarily develop potential strategies to facilitate bottom-line benefits and incentives through the certification program. They may also form the foundation for ongoing advisory task groups in targeted areas. While additional topics will be added as appropriate, currently planned forums include:
* Insurance Recognition
* Legal Liability Mitigation
* Rating Agency Acknowledgement
* Supply Chain Management
* Integration wth other Business Reporting
* Corporate Governance & Social Responsibility
* Integration with Existing Management Systems (e.g. quality, environmental)
* Potential TRIA considerations
* Small & Medium-Sized Enterprises
* Key Vertical Industries (e.g., financial services)
ANSI, the American National Standards Institute, has been invited to assist in providing an overview of the potential accreditation and certification process during the forums.
Parties interested in participating are welcomed to contact Margaret Della at InterCEP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-998-2000. While participation in the forums will be limited to assure productive discussion, all comments and input are welcomed by email and will be considered in any reporting.
