Find detailed descriptions below.
Conscious Business Chat (CBC)
Pandemic Shift: CBCs are now being conducted virtually at noon every Wednesday unless replaced by a Conscious Business Journey (CBJ) event.
CBCs are one-hour, informal meetings held monthly on the second Friday, typically starting at 9:00am. These events are open to anyone and are conducted at a variety of different breakfast/coffee shop locations. Facilitated by a CCAZ member, CBCs are designed both for people new to Conscious Capitalism to explore its tenets and for those already pursuing Conscious Capitalism to share challenges and explore solutions. There is no fee to attend, but registration is highly encouraged to assist with organizing each meeting.
Conscious Business Journey (CBJ)
Pandemic Shift: CBJs are now being conducted virtually at noon on the third Wednesday of the month pending availability of speakers. Many potential speakers have needed to delay their presentations based on addressing the impact of COVID-19 on their businesses.
CBJs are scheduled monthly on the third Wednesday. Pending availability of speakers, these meetings are held at 7:30am or 5:30pm for two hours. Registration is required. Light snacks and beverages are provided. The event is open to everyone, and the registration fee is based on membership status. The presentations are delivered by senior business leaders who are or have implemented components of Conscious Capitalism into their organizations. Each session will provide attendees with specific, actionable recommendations which are aligned with the Conscious Business Summary Audit.
Member Mix-n-Mingle (M3)
Pandemic Shift: M3s are cancelled temporarily due to social distancing and venue closures. But, be on the lookout for possible “virtual” Happy Hours.
M3s are held monthly on the fourth Thursday at 5:30pm for two hours. Registration is required for members and their guests. While there is no charge for members, members may register and bring guests for a fee. Light food is provided. M3s are geared to help members create and build connections with others who are striving to better conscious business leaders.
Conscious Business Learning (CBL)
CBLs are virtual learning experiences using the Microsoft Teams platform. Live, online presentations are recorded and available for future viewing by CCAZ members. Registration is required, and fees are dependent on membership status. Similar to the Conscious Business Journey presentations, topics are aligned with Conscious Business Summary Audit. Presenters are often consultants and service providers, and we welcome inquiries to present to our audience. Click here to submit a proposal.
CCAZ is always looking for new and creative programs related to Conscious Capitalism. Events in the past have included conferences, workshops, VIP presenters, and more. We host such events as opportunities present themselves. Registration is required, and fees for these events is established on a case-by-case basis.
There are many organizations that produce great programs. As appropriate based on alignment with Conscious Capitalism, CCAZ will assist in promoting programs of partner organizations. Potential partner organizations should contact CCAZ to explore how we might work together and assist with programming and event promotions.
