CHESTNUT HILL, Mass., Feb. 20 /CSRwire/ - Boston College’s 2012 International Corporate Citizenship Conference in Phoenix is five weeks away but there are five good reasons not to wait any longer to register. Those who register now will:

  1. Learn from keynote speakers what’s going on inside global brands such as Microsoft, Hershey, Ernst & Young and Dell
  2. Network with peers from companies in your industry and beyond
  3. Participate in an on-site micro-volunteer project sponsored by Intel
  4. Enjoy Phoenix as Arizona celebrates 100 years of statehood and learn from the Arizona Public Service Co. about the state’s tradition of corporate citizenship
  5. 5.     Take advantage of special $199 hotel rate before it ends March 2 (or hotel sells out)!

For all this and more, join Boston College in Phoenix, March 25-27, at the 2012 International Corporate Citizenship Conference. The conference is expected to sell out again and hotel reservations are going fast.

The need to develop successful corporate citizenship strategies is growing and so is demand for a seat at the conference. This gathering provides an opportunity for corporate professionals to learn from, and network with, more than 500 peers. Inspiring keynote speakers representing companies that lead the field will give an inside look at how their businesses tackle today’s challenges.

Attendees represent a variety of business functions, including corporate citizenship, community relations, sustainability, communications, external affairs and human resources. With a theme of “Corporate Citizenship: Managing Many Environments”, the 2012 conference will deliver new insights on how to manage the diverse portfolio of responsibilities associated with corporate citizenship.

Breakout sessions and workshops feature experts on the issues and challenges corporate citizenship practitioners manage every day. Panelists representing a wide range of companies such as FedEx, US Airways, Suncor, MasterCard, Travelers, New Balance, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Altria, and Wells Fargo will share their knowledge in sessions on topics that include:

  • Engaging stakeholders in the era of social media
  • Aligning corporate citizenship across the company and inside business units
  • Taking employees on the environmental journey
  • Business growth through a commitment to values
  • Taking your citizenship program global
  • Creating a strategic and successful philanthropy program
  • Developing the workforce of tomorrow through investment in education
  • Producing green products
  • Motivating your employee base to engage in advancing positive corporate citizenship from  wherever they sit
  • Finding financial gain from a commitment to reduce your environmental footprint
    Leveraging business expertise to drive social value
  • Making the connection between corporate citizenship performance and reputation
  • Finding creative and innovative approaches to disaster readiness, relief and recovery
    Developing strategy
  • The value of using the GRI framework for reporting

With less than two weeks remaining on the special hotel rate of $199 (if the hotel doesn’t sell out sooner), there’s no better time than today to register for the 2012 International Corporate Citizenship Conference.
