We realize that you have many events competing for your time and money. We believe our national conference, Responsible Investing: Impact & Innovation, will hold tremendous value for you as an attendee, from networking opportunities to content.

Let’s talk about networking first. The Social Investment Forum (SIF), the host for the event, is the US association representing sustainable and responsible investors (SRI). We expect hundreds of attendees, including asset owners, fund managers, financial advisors and planners, as well as representatives from civil society organizations, corporations, government and multilateral institutions to be actively engaging about the pressing challenges and opportunities confronting SRI today and. So, have your business card or electronic v-card ready!

Next, let’s look at content. Generation Investment Management Chairman and former Vice-President Al Gore, SEC Commissioner Luis A. Aguilar, Self-Help and Center for Responsible Lending CEO Martin Eakes, State of North Carolina Treasurer Janet Cowell, and Global Head of Investment Content at Towers Watson Investment Services Roger Urwin will all address plenary sessions. In breakout sessions, we will explore fiduciary duty and SRI, conflict minerals, alternative asset classes, community investing, climate change investment strategies, food security, ESG integration, incorporation of SRI strategies by foundations, microfinance, and implementation of Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation.

Last, let’s assess the value proposition. The fee for attending the event, if you take advantage of this early registration offer expiring on April 29, is only $595.00. Add a room at only $200.00 per night through our special registration package, and the total comes to $795.00. We also have negotiated an incredible $259.00 rate per night for other nights around our conference for those who would like to come earlier or stay longer in Washington, DC.
