It’s Official: Central Ohio has a Professional Chapter of Net Impact

October 19, 2011

Come out and help celebrate the launch of Net Impact of Central Ohio, a local professional chapter of Net Impact! It’s a fabulous way to make a difference in the world through harnessing the power of business.

The Net Impact of Central Ohio professional chapter is launching at tomorrow’s (Oct. 20, 2011) Green Drinks event: Business for a Greener World. This event will take place at Barley’s Ale House (467 N. High St.) in the basement from 6-8pm and feature a panel of local green businesses, including Weisenbach Recycled Products, Generation Green and EcoFlora. Check out more info about the event here to link to the FB event page.

If you aren’t familiar with Net Impact, it’s a global non-profit organization whose mission it is to inspire, educate and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world. Net Impact Professional Chapters host networking events and happy hours, offer educational opportunities that focus on sustainability, corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, and on and on. Once you become a member you have access to the online jobs boards and many free webinars to assist you in bringing sustainability into your business.

Green Drinks is a monthly green networking event, brought to you by Green Columbus, held in different locations each month to create a forum for sustainability focused individuals (or the curious) to network, create awareness, and encourage action. This month Green Columbus and Net Impact of Central Ohio are working together to host Green Drinks. This is the debut of the new Net Impact chapter and part of the event will explain more about what they are and explain how to find out more about them.

This should be a very fun, lively event and I hope that I get an opportunity to meet all of you there!

You can find Net Impact of Central Ohio on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Green Columbus info can be found on Facebook and the web. Check them both out and get involved. It’s so easy.
