Let’s Get Local: Attracting Capital to Local Energy Projects

 Let’s Get Local: Attracting Capital to Local Energy Projects
March 23, 2017 @ 6:00 PM
Encouraging and empowering people to act locally binds together the local fabric of a community. People build thriving communities when they invest locally. The entire community benefits when small businesses and investors recirculate their dollars in the local economy.

This is something we all hear too often- “shop local”, “think global, act local”. But how often do we apply this framework to our energy use? How often do we turn on our light switch without thinking about where it comes from? Local energy empowers communities to work together to make effective investments, leveraging the support and incentives offered by utilities and the state and federal governments. Join CABA for a panel discussion on moving capital to local energy projects and building up value in the local economy.

Corporate Citizenship Conference

Corporate Citizenship Conference
March 26, 2017 @ 5:00 PM
In the last three decades, the role of a corporate citizenship professional has evolved. While many still operate in small teams, you have become experts at drawing on the ideas and information, expertise, effort, and financial support of your internal and external partners to advance your businesses, your communities, and our world. These networks are part of your broader ecosystem.

The ecosystems in which we operate create constraints and offer opportunities—coming from multiple directions and always in flux. These ecosystems will be the focus of our conference.
