Janet Froetscher, president and chief executive officer of the National Safety Council, will be speaking at Monday's opening general session.

The National Safety Council saves lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the roads through leadership, research, education and advocacy. NSC is grounded in science and promotes the use of best practices to save lives and prevent injuries. As the first organization to call for a national ban on cell phone use while driving, NSC has taken a leadership role on the issue.

She also is co-founder of Executive Options.

Ms. Froetscher holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Virginia and a Masters of Management from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management of Northwestern University.
