NH Businesss for Social Responsibility
 April 2013 Newsletter
There's so much information out there on sustainability and corporate responsibility. Sometimes, it almost feels like too much - the books, articles, and posts start piling up on our desks and in our inboxes. Perhaps the problem is in the delivery: the loss of connection to our human networks. Maybe we just need to reconnect with like-minded professionals in our own backyard.
Spring ConferenceSo, here's where the Pause comes in. Set aside some time (May 21st sound good?!) to reinvigorate your sustainability/CSR efforts. Spend one day joining your peers, gaining new perspective, and discussing topics that are important to you at NHBSR's Spring Conference.
Once you register for the conference, take a moment and add your ideas for discussion to our "Huddle-up" webpage. Have you seen an intriguing article, have a question you'd like to explore or just want to get other perspectives? Share your discussion idea - you don't have to lead the conversation, you can just suggest it and we'll find a "Conversation Catalyst" (or train you, if interested). Ideas are voted on by registrants and the top twenty will be selected for inclusion at the conference.
This is your opportunity to hear new ideas and strategies that may just Click for you and your sustainability goals! Don't stand on the sidelines:
register by April 15th and we'll give you an Early Bird discount too!
To get warmed up for the conference, join on us April 16th at Timberland for our next Sustainability Roundtable, "Values in Action - Getting Everyone Involved."
