Global Advisors Network

BCSI, Inc. is grateful to the following individuals for agreeing to participate in our Global Advisors Network (BCSI - GAN).  Each participant in the BCSI - GAN has been willing to share information and perspective on current international efforts to develop and promote social entreprenuership.  As members of the BCSI - GAN, these individuals are able to inform and help shape our strategic initiatives.  Although BCSI's main focus is developing standards for benefit corporations, we also intend to develop and maintain a collaborative platform for learning about and supporting other efforts such as the Community Interest Companies (CICs) in the United Kingdom, Community Contribution Companies (CCCs) in British Columbia and Social Purpose Corporations (SPCs) in Washington State among others.  Please let us know if you are interested in serving on the BCSI - GAN by contacting us.
