April 2015 President’s Corner

Hello Net Impact Boston Members,

It’s Earth Month! During April, our content theme will be focused on this month of heightened environmental awareness – heightened, that is, in a mainstream sense. I’m sure it’s always on your mind. Nevertheless, it’s important that we help shine the spotlight as brightly as possible (using energy efficient bulbs, of course) on the state of our planet, and on the risks which climate change is creating for businesses (another of our content themes, incidentally).

Here’s how we’re doing our part:

In what has become an annual Earth Month tradition, we will be partnering with the Massachusetts DCR on an event during the day of Saturday, April 25, providing an opportunity for you to volunteer to get your hands dirty in service of Mother Nature. Let’s hope that Mother Nature will return the favor with some sunshine.

A semi-annual tradition, our Board Fellows Program matching cycle, is open NOW. Deadline for applications is May 1, so get on it! As for monthly traditions, we’ve got those too – our Sustainability Breakfast at Pret A Manger is Wednesday, April 15th.

Finally, a fantastic opportunity is available to Net Impact Boston members via Impact Hub Boston’s Community Membership Program. Hope your spring is off to a lovely start.

Best,

Kevin Hart

Connecting professionals, empowering change
