ACCP was founded on the premise that we are stronger together. We believe in maximizing impact by fostering meaningful connections, building partnerships, and sharing diverse perspectives and experiences. One important way we foster connections is through ACCP’s Member Group program, which allows ACCP members to connect with and learn from peers.
Most Member Groups meet virtually on a quarterly basis, unless otherwise noted below, to have open discussions on relevant corporate social impact topics, listen to dynamic speakers, engage in Q&A with topical experts, network with peers, and more. These members-only gatherings are not recorded, to encourage sharing and candid discussion.
You can engage in Member Groups and Peer Discussions by registering for and attending upcoming events or by joining the conversation in our Online Communities. We encourage members to propose topics, case studies, or speakers by emailing Hillary Roviaro at email@example.com.
Member Groups & Peer Discussions
Join ACCP staff and guest speakers on the second Thursday of each month at 2:00 pm ET for case studies and discussions on trending topics most relevant to your work. If you would like to submit a request for a specific topic or share your experience during a Topical Thursday, please connect with Hillary Roviaro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CSR Small Teams
CSR Small Teams is a community of ACCP members who are currently on a team of five or less. Whether you are a small team in a small company, a small team in a large company, or just starting out, we all experience challenges in scaling programs and doing more with less. As a community, we will discuss challenges, successes, ideas, and best practices with teams in similar situations and identify ways ACCP can support small teams in the future.
The Emerging Leaders Member Group is a peer networking opportunity for ACCP members in their first 3-6 years of working in the social impact, CSR, pr ESG field. This group will serve as a source for corporate social impact practitioners to grow in their knowledge of the field, develop as leaders, build a network, and create a community to learn and grow with for years to come. While this group is built for impact professionals, the focus will be on career and professional development. Potential discussion topics include, but are not limited to, management skills, communication skills, influence, career growth, current social impact topics and aligning CSR to the business.
The Executive Network is by invitation only.
The ACCP Executive Network is an exclusive forum for the most senior corporate social impact leaders in our member companies to collaborate, learn from one another, and build a trusted network of peers around topics that drive the future of corporate citizenship and ESG.
The Foundations Member Group is for ACCP members who have or are planning to start a Foundation as part of their company’s CSR efforts. Here you can ask questions about Foundation policies, discuss matters related to Foundation Boards of Directors, share resources specific to giving from a Foundation, and more.
MedTech & Pharma
This community of professionals in the MedTech and Pharmaceutical industries meets on the second Tuesday of every month from 3:00pm-3:45pm ET facilitated by tri-leaders Megan Baker, Erica Henderson & Anne Wales.
Meetings include discussions that reflect current trends in the field, best practices, case studies, and vendor insights.
