Save the Date for the 2017 US SIF Conference May 10-12 in Chicago!

The US SIF Annual Conference offers a unique opportunity to network with leaders of sustainable, responsible and impact investing, to hear from leading investors, CEOs and policymakers, and to learn about new approaches, trends and policy developments in the field. The conference attracts representatives of investment management and advisory firms, research firms, financial planners and advisors, broker-dealers, community development institutions and asset owners such as pension funds and foundations, along with policymakers and corporate leaders. 

We invite you to participate in US SIF’s 2017 annual conference, A New Climate for Investing in Impact.

About the theme:  In 2017, after eight years of President Obama's leadership, a new president will take office, and a number of seats in the US Congress, governorships and state legislatures will change as well.  These changes will present opportunities and challenges for investors who wish to achieve social and environmental impact. 

Concurrently, investment professionals increasingly are expected to demonstrate their awareness of how environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors affect company and portfolio financial performance. Public interest in sustainable and impact investing has also never been greater. 

To submit a session or speaker suggestion:  Typically, the US SIF annual conference consists of four to five plenary sessions and nine concurrent or “breakout” sessions divided among three tracks. 

If you wish to submit a suggestion for a plenary or breakout session, you may use this online form. Please provide a brief description of the proposed session’s content and speakers and how the session relates to the conference theme of investing for impact in a new climate.  Finally, please indicate whether you are acquainted with the suggested speaker(s) and can help secure their commitment to participate.  Please include any contact information you may have for speakers. The deadline for submission is Friday, November 18, 2016.

We will review all ideas and will be in touch if there is a fit.  Unfortunately, we cannot respond to all inquiries.
