B:CIVIC is a community organization designed to provide companies and professionals with the opportunity to learn about best practices in corporate social responsibility (CSR), be engaged in key initiatives, raise awareness of the positive impact of Colorado businesses in the community and be recognized for leadership on behalf of social responsibility.

B:CIVIC relies on our board of directors and committees to help shape our work and help elevate the importance of CSR in a way that meets the needs of our diverse members.  It is also a great way to develop relationships and contacts with other professionals and to strengthen the network of companies working to be actively involved in Colorado’s communities.

The current committee opportunities are listed below.
