The McCord Lecture Series was made possible through the financial support of Illinois Mutual Life Insurance Company and named in honor of business role model and community leader, Robert A. McCord. Through the series, participants get a chance to meet leaders they read about in BusinessWeek and The Wall Street Journal and discuss the challenges of leading a major enterprise.
