CSR Board

Board Meetings

At Board Meetings, you’ll collaborate with people like you who can help you be a more effective corporate social responsibility leader.

Everything is completely private, off the record, and in an incredibly efficient format. Get fast answers to the questions and challenges you can’t talk about anywhere else.

Every meeting is exclusively for corporate social responsibility leaders at major brands.

You’ll connect with more corporate social responsibility leaders from major brands in one day than you will anywhere else all year. Bringing so many brands together creates incredible conversations that span a wide range of challenges. You’ll get answers and insights from unexpected places, make amazing connections, and leave with a notebook full of ideas.

There are absolutely no vendors or sponsors allowed.

No vendors, sponsors, or consultants of any kind allowed. No speaking slots are for sale. No vendors are allowed in the room. No sponsors will be accepted in any form.

Board Meetings are for you and leaders like you. No sales pitches, period.

You’ll have incredibly valuable conversations.

Because everyone in the room is a corporate social responsibility leader, no matter what you’re looking to start, figure out, or fix — someone else has been there before and can help.

It’s efficient and designed for busy leaders.

We’re famous for running on-time, keeping a fast pace, and expert moderation. You’re busy, so we make sure every minute is time well spent.

Unique venues and changing formats — but always great experiences.

We mix things up to keep it interesting so no two meetings are ever the same. But the core never changes: Great conversations through unconferences, Show & Tell talks, member-led discussions, and meal discussions. We do a few meetings per year with low registration fees aimed to simply cover our costs.

We don’t do a lot of the usual conference stuff.

There are no sponsors, exhibitors, panels, keynotes, vendors, or canned presentations. In fact, the only time someone stands at the front of the room is when another member is sharing with you. Board Meetings aren’t conferences. They’re the highlight experience of membership, and attending gets you better insights, answers, and the help you need to lead your social media program. These conversations don’t happen anywhere else — it’s the kind of practical, actionable advice you can only get from other leaders like you.

How members describe the experience:

This was the best CSR meeting I've been to in six years. The networking portion was truly valuable. I met so many great people and made a lot of professional connections. Melissa Hazelwood, Ferguson Enterprises

Our team is thrilled to be part of this group. The Board Meetings and the ongoing conversations and collaboration are invaluable. Dennis Duquette, MassMutual

I enjoyed the conversations and exchange of experiences and ideas. Cristina Castro, American Airlines

Unconferences are the most helpful part. Basically, we get to choose the topics that we want to discuss with our peers and learn from them. Buffy Swinehart, Aflac

Each presentation was informative, and the order of presenters built the excitement and amount/quality of the information. Real Hamilton-Romeo, Sims Metal Management

There are no vendors, so we are free to talk with other practitioners and share strategies. It’s very valuable! Allison Brown, AbbVie
