The Conference of Fund Leaders (CFL) is a permanent entity for independent board chairs and lead independent directors of mutual funds in the United States. Through its roundtables, and steering and other committees, the CFL provides a unique opportunity for the independent leaders of fund boards to come together with their peers to discuss governance issues that board leaders and their funds face; proactively present their views on policy matters important to fund investors and independent directors, regulators and lawmakers; and promote research into the value and impact of effective, independent leadership at mutual funds.
