Charlotte Community Affairs Professionals
The mission of CCAP is to learn and share information among local corporate community affairs and social responsibility professionals, corporations, and non-profit organizations to better serve the communities where we live, work and do business.
- Networking and idea-sharing opportunities among peers and experts in the corporate community affairs and social responsibility sector.
- Private LinkedIn group to share resources and foster collaboration.
- Access to national best practices, as well as informal learning among members regarding practices that have or have not worked.
- Information on local nonprofit sector and community news and major initiatives.
At the forefront of the CCAP experience are the monthly meetings and quarterly programs. Meetings and programs include timely topics like employee engagement, Covid-19 response, racial and social justice issues, and updates on local initiatives. Previous programs have featured industry thought leaders like Points of Light, Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship, Mission Measurement, Porter Novelli, Rocket Social Impact, and Realized Worth.
CCAP Conversations: Casual conversations held six times per year that allow members to share ideas, investigate collaborations and learn about new nonprofit and community initiatives. Meetings are typically one hour in length.
Quarterly CCAP Meetings: Presentations by experts and stakeholder groups sharing new research, studies and groundbreaking corporate practices. These meetings also provide round table discussions, key community updates and social gatherings. Meetings are typically two hours in length.
