Bottom Lines Center Live

Group photo from a prior year's event

Event Date: 

Thursday, January 20, 2022

Time: 

9:15am-5:00pm
Members of BuildingEnergy Bottom Lines, NESEA's business development program, will convene virtually for a day of community building and deep-dives into topics affecting their businesses. Breakout discussions will be led by program facilitators.
 
A common request from Bottom Line members is an opportunity to cross pollinate with members of other groups, especially around specific areas of interest. This year, during our all group meeting on January 20, we’ll be launching several new network-wide communities of practice based on the model piloted by the Anti-Racist Action Group and the re-invigorated Architects’ Hub. Our All Group Meeting will be organized as a series of 1 hour Zoom meetings to kick off these communities of practice. As a Bottom Lines member, you are invited to scope out any/all of the groups that interest you.
 
These groups will be ongoing Zoom conversations, organized and supported by Bottom Line members with support from our facilitators, and designed as venues for sustained connection around specific topics. 
 
Participation in this event and in these groups is free and open to all employees of companies participating in the Bottom Lines program. Contact Florence at fmacgregor@nesea.org with questions.

Goals for the Day

As always, the goals for our annual full network meeting:

  • Sustain member identity with the whole Bottom Lines network
  • Cross-pollinate across Bottom Lines groups
  • Provide opportunities for members to connect and share around domains of interest
  • Attend to topics that aren't always explored in sufficient depth during regular gatherings
  • Advance triple bottom line practice and as always: know each other and care for each other better!
