BLD: NEW ENGLAND JUNE 19, 2019 at Alnoba, Kensington, NH
BLD New England is an all-day conference dedicated to the development of the B Economy in our region. By strengthening individual B Corps and the connections between them and stakeholders in our community, we build a stronger movement. The event is Co-hosted by B Local Boston and organized by a volunteer committee of Certified B Corporations and others dedicated to the B Economy.
We ask companies to limit their registration to 8 individuals. A limited number of scholarships are available. For inquiries about registration in general, registering more than 8 attendees, or information about scholarships, please contact us directly at Blocalboston@gmail.com.
INSPIRE 2019 BLD Theme
In early 2019 we shared a survey with all New England B Corps to ask what they might want the theme to be for this year’s BLD Event at Alnoba. The leading theme was Inspire, which we loved too! It reminds us of the very first time we ever heard of B Corp, the way we feel when we visit other companies who are part of our movement, and the aspirations we have for how we want to show up in the world.
to fill someone with the urge to do or feel something, especially something creative
to motivate, encourage, influence, energize, create (a positive feeling) in a person.
to breathe in (air); inhale
With your help we hope that we’ve aimed to organize a BLD 2019 that will INSPIRE us! Inspire us to be better leaders, more wonderful team members, and wiser stewards of our environments. This call for inspiration is woven throughout the BLD - we aim to inspire each other on a personal level, a company level, and at a community level.
