Hats off to everyone who attended our inaugural event at USD on May 11th. It was standing room only with over 280 people in attendance — a majority of whom were San Diego business leaders.
It may seem like we’ve been quiet lately, though there’s been a lot going on behind the scenes. Beginning in August, we have at minimum one event per month, with most having two or more, all packed full of value.
I’ve been connecting with a lot of you over the past few weeks and I want to answer some of the important questions out there.
What’s the mission of the San Diego chapter?
Our mission is to foster the adoption of conscious capitalism and activate the potential of purpose-driven organizations to maximize value for all stakeholders. We do this through education, mentorship, business community engagement and modeling conscious business practices.
Basically, we want to get as many on board with the Conscious Capitalism principles as we can.
Here’s how you can help with that. If you belong to, or know of any organization that might have an interest in Conscious Capitalism, introduce us to them.
That includes any company, association, networking group, or whatever.
We will come out to any San Diego based organization — at no charge — and give an introduction to the movement and principles of Conscious Capitalism.
Someone come to mind? Reach out to me or Bill Dooley, who is our Membership & Partnership chair and we will get in touch right away.
What’s the value of becoming a Member?
In the post-event survey we sent to all of you last month, you told us that you were most interested in attending events with expert speakers, followed very closely by participating in peer-based learning and networking events.
While anyone can attend our larger events (though members get discount and event benefits,) there are two member-only benefits that you may enjoy.
The first is Peer-Based Learning, which are small, intimate events designed to leverage the vast knowledge we have in our membership already. In these you will both share your experiences as well as learn best practices from other members, all while developing close relationships.
Our first two will be in August and September. Be on the lookout for dates in the next few weeks.
The second are Member-Only Webinars, where you will learn more specific topics from internationally acclaimed experts in an online format. This includes topics like B-Corps, Servant Leadership, Creating and Sustaining a Conscious Culture, and more. The library will also be kept online for the membership to access on-demand.

How can I get more involved?
Let us know! We are looking for volunteers, committee members, and there are both current and future board positions to be considered.
Contact Malcolm Avner if you believe in the cause and have some time and space to move this game-changing movement forward.
Remember, love is the most powerful force in the universe. Business is number two. Let’s put them together and really affect some change.
