In 2017, B:CIVIC is offering content- rich and thought-provoking programs, workshops, peer-to-peer roundtables, networking events, a Summit, and special experiences for our members, with opportunities for others to participate in some of these activities as well.
B:CIVIC member companies receive complimentary passes to regular programs and discounted admission to special events as a benefit of membership. Company membership entitles all your employees to attend B:CIVIC events.
B:CIVIC Summit 2017
Watch for our B:CIVIC Summit scheduled for the fall of 2017. The day-long event will host inspirational speakers, national thought leaders, and businesses whose community engagement efforts are models to admire and follow. Summit activities and workshops will prompt collaborative knowledge exchange among people who are passionate about corporate social responsibility (CSR) and business philanthropy. Our first-ever Summit in 2016 was a success and we are moving to build on that momentum! View 2016 Summit speakers. View 2016 Summit photos.
B:CIVIC Sparks ‘n Sips
These once-a-quarter sessions (beginning in January) promise to spark your mind and motivation, and focus on issues of importance to our members and community. Sessions feature speakers from across industries and company sizes who share case studies, knowledge, and best practices around their area of expertise and their passion for corporate social responsibility. In addition to the main speaker, panelists shed additional light on the topic. Each event includes a chance to enjoy networking and refreshments. Sparks ‘n Sips are typically held between 4 and 6 pm. Members and all their employees are invited to attend at no cost; non-members are $45 per person.
B:CIVIC CSR Peer Roundtables
The roundtables are an engaging peer-advisory group for CSR professionals at any level who are involved in corporate philanthropy, sustainability, community investment and community relations, including those whose roles also involve marketing, HR, strategic initiatives and similar areas. Your responsibilities do not have to be exclusively in CSR. Roundtables are open to CSR professionals who are B:CIVIC members. Non-members are invited to attend as a step in exploring B:CIVIC company membership.
B:CIVIC CSR Roundtables are held in four geographic areas. Each area holds their roundtables every other month, so there is generally one B:CIVIC CSR Roundtable happening across the region each month. CSR professionals may attend any or all of the four area roundtable groups, however, registration is required.
