May is upon us- signifying flowers, a day for "mom" and the end of tax season (insert sigh of relief here).
This month also holds meaning for some associations. All week, Mental Health awareness has been campaigned across the nation. A subject that used to be kept mum in the past is gaining a much needed voice. #GetLoud
Additionally, in an effort to recognize the significant impact of a trending business model, the province proclaimed May 2015 asSocial Enterprise Month. Social Enterprises are organizations committed to a social mission that direct their revenue to drive social change. Based on a 2012 survey, B.C. social enterprises provided services to nearly 700,000 people and generated at least $60 million in revenues. #Impact4BC
To do our part in recognizing these big-hearted businesses, we've added Social Entrepreneur of the Year to our Annual Business Excellence Awards. To nominate a social enterprise, click here.
