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 CSR 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, join the conversation in our Online Communities, and propose topics, case studies, or speakers by emailing Hillary Roviaro at email@example.com.
2023 Member Groups & Peer Discussions
New for 2023, join ACCP staff and guest speakers on the second Thursday of each month at 2:00pm 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 Service Providers
Have questions about the many CSR Service Provider options available, want to connect with other Members actively using specific systems, or want to talk about your experience? Join us for the quarterly CSR Service Providers member group meeting where we will highlight a different category of provider each meeting.
CSR Small Teams
CSR Small Teams is a community of ACCP members who are currently on a team of 5 or less. Whether you are a small team in a small company, a small team in a large company, or just starting off, we all experience challenges in how to scale programs and do 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.
Join the Small Teams Online Community!
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, ESG field. This group will serve as a source for CSR 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.
