In this election year, it is clear that American corporations are already dealing with a climate of change. As business adjusts to new leadership in Washington and an uncertain economic environment, there was no better time and place for an in-depth discussion on the future of business than at the FORTUNE 500 Forum, December 1-3, in Washington D.C.

With a new administration taking office in January, there is a new era in Washington and a new era for Americas leading companies. The Forum convened business leaders together with policy experts, Washington insiders, and change agents to explore and exchange perspectives on the climate for business in 2009 and beyond.
