What You Need to Know About Benefit Legislation

legislation-map-aug2014Local First Arizona is thrilled that Arizona recently passed legislation authorizing benefit corporations, a new class of corporation for all businesses that seek to create a positive impact on society, as well as a positive return for investors. If your business is thinking of structuring as a benefit corporation, or if you want to learn if its the right fit, we encourage you to take part in our free webinar with Holly Ensign Barstow, Policy Associate at B Lab and Yvonne Moss and Mackenzie Woods, both of Phoenix based Carter Law Group. Holly will be giving a review of what B Lab does and why they developed the new corporate form. Yvonne and Mackenzie will be going over how Arizona businesses can register as a benefit corporation, how benefit legislation differs from conventional corporations and how doing so will effect you. Join us and get involved in this growing movement to redefine success in business! When: Monday, November 17 from 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. There will be time for Q&A. Where: Online webinar Cost: Free!

ALSO! We'd love to see a strong showing of Arizona businesses who become benefit corporations on January 2, 2015 as this poses an opportunity for us to highlight the Arizona mission-driven business community. Please email [email protected] if your business is going to make the change to a benefit corporation so that we can be sure to highlight you.
