Grappone Conference Center, 70 Constitution Ave, Concord

NHBSR's 18th annual Spring Conference is a day you won't want to miss. As New Hampshire's preeminent conference on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), our Spring Conference is an opportunity to join over 300 organizational and business professionals in leading the charge for sustainability throughout the state of New Hampshire. The day itself is specifically designed to emphasize networking and collaborative opportunities, while creating a sound platform for participants to learn about the resources, skills, and knowledge that will help them develop their own sustainability initiatives and programs. 

This year’s conference, “We Are the Change”, will provide a dynamic day of programming, kicking off with a keynote address by Carol Sanford, Senior Fellow of Social Innovation at Babson College and Author of The Regenerative Business. In her keynote, Carol will help us look at the blind spots even well-intended businesses have. She will share with us effective ways to discover these blind spots in order to transition to a system that builds citizens and workers who are critical thinkers capable of working in successful teams and as self-determining individuals. In addition to her keynote, Carol will also lead one of the conference’s workshops. You can read about Carol's background here

Breakout sessions in the morning and afternoon are organized into six different tracks: Health & Wellness, Energy & Environment, Workplace & Workforce Development, Community, Measure What Matters NH, and Engage for Impact. Each session not only offers participants the chance to explore in-depth sustainability efforts and creative solutions, but also the opportunity to connect with local resources and like-minded individuals.

There's great strength in collaboration and connection. Efforts to bolster the resiliency, vibrancy, and prosperity of our communities and world are vital to us all.

We hope that you will join us!!
