NH Businesss for Social Responsibility
 May 2013 Newsletter
Getting sustainability to take hold in a busy, professional environment can be hard. Sometimes you feel like an island in the middle of a sea of naysayers. That's one of the reasons we changed the format of the Spring Conference to include Huddle-Ups. These afternoon discussions are a way for all of us to build stronger support networks and to expand them in our own professional environments.
The Huddle-Up topics themselves are meant to give participants the opportunity to explore and mine
knowledge in the group, so submit your ideas for discussion to nhbsr.uservoice.com. We want you to
be able to take back actionable ideas to your workplace.
We won't stop there though. This is not a once a year event...we want to build off these discussions,
providing events and support networks to inspire you throughout the coming year. So make sure you
don't miss THE CSR/sustainable business event of the year - register now!

Best,
Michelle
