ABSTRACT
This article provides information about the National Industrial Conference Board, which was founded on ay 5, 1916 as a response to public criticisms of many business practices of the day. The Board was organized around the belief that trade associations and industrialists "might cooperate and jointly develop the most satisfactory devices and methods and thus place at the disposal of the members of all associations the combined judgment and experience of all committees." This process of "development" required the accumulation and dissemination of accurate information on business practices, and the continued emphasis on objective business research remains evident in the Conference Board's credo. Starting with an initial membership of fifteen, the Board currently has about 3000 organizational subscribers from over fifty countries. The Conference Board's ongoing research efforts are divided into four general programs: corporate relations, economic and business environment, human resources, and management functions.
