[Sayma-Discuss] FW: Thanksgiving Conversation — Seeking Inaugural Class of B Corps Fellows

“B Corps” is looking for “Fellows” to be trained: “to help businesses to measure and manage the impact of their business on their workers, communities and the environment”. This is a not for profit organization which is making it legal for corporations to exist for more than the “bottom line”.
If this type of corporation became legal in all states, it would help make a difference in how business could report how they interact with the competing pressures they face in our modern world. As we learn more and more about the unintended consequences of how we report “Profit and Loss” in the capitalistic model we now use this is a good idea to bring to light other activities of businesses besides traditional financial statements.
We Friends have an opportunity to help the states where SAYMA meetings are located to adopt this legislation as our region is way behind the rest of the USA in changing the laws of incorporation to permit “B Corporations” to form. Check them out and see if you might want to support those working to bring this light to your state. http://www.bcorporation.net/what-are-b-corps
PS: Please forward to any “Young Adult Friends” list, if there is one that you know of.
