The Eleventh Annual Conference on Business & Ethics (CBE) will feature Pat Haden, USC Athletic Director and former USC and LA Rams quarterback, and Richard Riordan, former Mayor of Los Angeles and founder of the UCLA Richard Riordan Programs.
This conference is one of the most impactful business events of the year and is a wonderful opportunity for companies to position themselves among the finest in Orange County; companies that are proud to associate themselves with the conference that underscores the importance of values and ethics.
This year’s Bishop Kevin W. Vann Award for Exemplary Business Integrity will be presented to Rick Muth and Rob Neal for their commitment to ethical best practices in their business and personal lives. Reverend Robert H. and Arvella Schuller will also be recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Farmers & Merchants Bank. A news release is available with more information on these outstanding individuals and the awards they will receive.
The Bishop's Award for Exemplary Business Integrity has formerly been given to 20 honorees who met, if not exceeded, the requisite criterion.
While the purpose of the Conference on Business & Ethics is to provide an annual forum for business leaders in Orange County, the Conference also raises funds to provide tuition assistance for Catholic school students in the Diocese of Orange. Through the past ten years, the Conference on Business and Ethics has raised more than $1,000,000 to support tuition assistance grants for our Catholic schools.
Sponsorship of this event directly impacts the lives of many students in our Catholic schools who will directly benefit from your generosity today and in the future as they become our future business, community and spiritual leaders.
A Case for Catholic Education
There is a great deal of information in support of Catholic education. The January 2012 edition of the Orange County Catholic featured an article by Greg Dhuyvetter, the Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Orange entitled “The Case for Catholic Education” In September of 2011, the Wall Street Journal ran a feature article by Richard Reardon, the former mayor of Los Angeles, focusing on the value of Catholic education. More recently, the LMU Center for Catholic Education published study outlined the impact that Catholic schools are making…not simply for the Catholic community but for the common good of all society.
