B:CIVIC is offers content- rich and thought-provoking programs, workshops, peer-to-peer roundtables, networking events, an annual Summit, and special experiences for our members, with opportunities for others to participate in some of these activities as well. Who should attend? Business owners, professionals, corporate social responsibility professionals and anyone interested in aligning their philanthropic work with their business goals.
B:CIVIC member companies receive complimentary passes to regular programs and discounted admission to special events as a benefit of membership. Company membership extends then to all your employees.
The luncheon and half-day event will be filled with inspirational speakers, national thought leaders, and businesses whose community engagement efforts are models to admire and follow. Activities and workshops will prompt collaborative knowledge exchange among people who are passionate about corporate social responsibility (CSR) and business philanthropy.

B:CIVIC Sparks ‘n Sips
These once-a-quarter sessions (January, April, July, October) 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.
Members-Only Working Lunch
These knowledge exchange sessions include facilitated discussion and exploration around topics such as measurements, strategy, communication, etc., and applying best practices to participants’ real-world work. The Working Lunch is offered several times during the year. As a B:CIVIC member company, be sure to take advantage of this meaningful opportunity.
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 or a similar area in a for-profit company or B Corp. Your responsibilities do not have to be exclusively in CSR. Roundtables are open to CSR professionals who are B:CIVIC members. Eligible non-members are invited to attend as a step in exploring B:CIVIC company membership.
B:CIVIC CSR Roundtables are held in several geographic areas, including those noted below. 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.
– Downtown Denver – Meets the second Wednesday of every other month from 7:30 am to 9 am
– Denver Tech Center – Meets the third Thursday of every other month, from 7:30 am – 9 am
The dates/timing of roundtables may change if scheduling conflicts arise. See our calendar for specific dates and times.
