Mar. 04 /CSRwire/ - EDISON, N.J. – March 4, 2008 – The 2008 Spring CRO Conference's headliner-filled lineup on March 27 is proving a big draw for North America's top Corporate Responsibility practitioners, providers and influencers. No wonder, since Time Magazine Person of the Year and WorldCom whistleblower Cynthia Cooper and Intel Chief Administrative Officer Andy Bryant head up the roster of Keynotes featured March 27 at NYC's prestigious Union League Club. The remainder of the CRO Conference's speaker lineup can be seen at

With 22 headline-grabbing speakers on the one-day program, the CRO Conference on March 27 will also feature a reception honoring CRO Magazine's just-released 100 Best Corporate Citizens. In recent days, CRO’s 100 Best list has received massive press coverage from,, Business Week, Fox News, and over 50 daily newspapers. Intel achieved top honors in placing No. 1 on the list, the ninth annual ranking of top corporate citizens among U.S.-headquartered public companies.

Rounding out the top 10 of the 100 Best were Eaton Corp. (No. 2), Nike Inc. (No. 3), Deere & Co. (No. 4), Genentech Inc. (No. 5), Corning Inc. (No. 6), Humana Inc. (No. 7), Bank of America Corp. (No. 8), ITT Corp. (No. 9) and PG&E Corp. (No. 10).

"For 9 straight years, the 100 Best list has stirred controversy and spurred companies to improve their governance, compliance and sustainability performance," says CRO Magazine Publisher and CRO Conference Chair Jay Whitehead. "The 2008 Spring conference will shine a bright light on this year’s 100 Best, the companies that set the pace for everyone else."

Rounding out its coverage of the list and all its attendant issues, the March 27 CRO Conference will also feature a session entitled "Presidential Debate: 100 Best Corporate Citizens and Other Rankings-Do They Matter?" Intel's CRO Dave Stangis, Eaton's VP Environment Safety Health Joe Wolfsberger, and the list's research head Mark Bateman from IW Financial will join several others on a panel devoted to exploring the list's issues.

The 2008 list marks the 100Best Corporate Citizens' ninth year in publication. And the Spring CRO Conference is the 4th in that event’s history.
