Click here to be added to the waiting list.
The Annual Conference on Corporate Contributions is the premier conference in the U.S. for professionals in corporate citizenship, corporate social responsibility, community relations and volunteerism, assembling renowned speakers, authors, practitioners and educators.
Participants leave the Conference with a renewed sense of purpose, greater understanding of trends and pressing issues, a wealth of practical knowledge that may be put to use immediately, and lasting connections through networking with colleagues from around the country and diverse corporations.
ACCP represents more than 800 executives who are relentlessly exploring ways to integrate business and social objectives. According to the latest report from GivingUSA, corporations allocated $14 billion to charitable causes last year alone. Expectations for how these resources perform against stated objectives have evolved. With a growing emphasis on results, the Conference’s central theme – The Shift - Corporate Citizenship’s Evolving Role – encapsulates the major initiatives reshaping the interface between business and society.
Questions that will be considered at Conference are: What is our role in developing the next crop of civic-minded business leaders? What insights do managers require to properly prepare for driving the company’s social reputation? How do we create, manage and sustain partnerships with NGOs that achieve mutually agreed upon results?
For corporate citizenship executives, rapid adaptation is not a luxury, it’s a reality. Whether meeting global reporting standards, demonstrating measureable results, utilizing social media channels to engage stakeholders, or forming multi-sector alliances corporate responsibility managers are shifting from bricklayers to architects. The below “shift” points and their evolution will be explored at this year’s Conference:
The 2013 ACCP Annual Conference plans to go beyond the construct of traditional corporate philanthropy. Our pursuit of defining “mastery” in our “shifting” profession is what will take corporate citizenship executives from problem solvers to agenda setters; analysts to integrators; and tacticians to strategists.
