Corporate Directors Hosting Public Event on Drones, Impact on Business


Corporate Directors Forum, a regional association of corporate directors in San Diego, is hosting an event, “BIG THINK: Topics for the Boardroom and Beyond,” which will focus on what drones bring to the world of business.

The public event, held Nov. 19 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla, will be helmed by drone experts Gregory S. McNeal, JD/Ph.D., and William O’Connor.

McNeal is a founder of AirMap, an associate professor of law and public policy at Pepperdine University, a Forbes contributor, and a member of the Federal Aviation Administration drone registration task force. O’Connor, a Morrison & Foerster partner in charge of the law firm’s unmanned aircraft systems group, focuses on litigation stemming from aviation accidents and product liability issues.

Attendees will have the opportunity to delve into topics such as citizens’ rights, emerging technology, data and film collection practices, accidents, and surveillance. All guests can receive one hour of MCLE and CPE credit.

“What seemed like distant science fiction just a few years ago is here today. We’re excited to have these thought leaders discuss this fascinating new technology and the implications that come along with it,” says Linda Sweeney, executive director of Corporate Directors Forum. “As leading experts in their respective fields, McNeal and O’Connor will give our audience an insightful, well-rounded look at the future of drone technology and what it means for their businesses and their everyday lives.”
