History of PRME NA Chapter Regional Meetings

The emerging PRME Chapter North America (USA and Canada) was first discussed at the 1st PRME Canada Meeting /Regional Meeting North America in 2013. The PRME Chapter was created during the 2nd PRME Regional Meeting North America, hosted by University of Washington Bothell School of Business on 10-11 October 2014.

During the workshop, the participants expressed their interest in working together and strengthening the engagement in the region, leading to the formation of the PRME Chapter North America.

The 3rd PRME Regional Meeting North America was hosted by Coles College of Business, Kennesaw State University. A project called “2x1” was implemented for this meeting, encouraging PRME signatories to invite a non-PRME signatory or a colleague from their institution that is not that familiar with PRME, with the incentive that the second attendee does not pay the conference fee in order to promote the Six PRME Principles, encourage implementation, and recruit signatories.

The 4th PRME Regional Meeting North America was held by the University of Guelph College of Business and Economics in 2017. Full conference agenda and information can be found here.

The 5th PRME Regional Meeting North America was co-hosted by The Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit, Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University and the College of Business Administration, Kent State University June 2nd - 4th, 2019. The event brought together more than 70 participants from academic, non-profit, and corporate backgrounds. We hosted academic presentations as well as interactive sessions with business and social enterprise professionals focused on strengthening the economic and social impact of their organizations through examining potential partnerships with private, public, and social sector organizations. We explored the opportunities afforded by strategic partnerships and learned from each other about academic initiatives. More information about the meeting can be found at:

The 6th PRME Regional Meeting North America was hosted by George Mason University’s Business for a Better World Center in the School of Business April 21-23, 2022 with a theme of Building a Better Future Together. included a workshop for junior scholars, 17 Rooms activity, unveiling of curricular materials for integrating sustainability across disciplines, teaching, research, and change-making sessions, poster presentation sessions, visits to beekeeping and hydroponics initiatives, meetings with food service on sustainability initiatives on campus, and working sessions on priorities and initiatives for the future of PRME NA.
