Investing in Our Communities

Published: December 2008

The challenge and opportunity of our time is: How do we help our communities and companies adapt to the forces shaping our era? And, how do we help people realize that companies are agents of positive change?

As a country, we are not just dealing with one transformative trend; we are dealing with a number of them. They are all happening at the same time, creating layer upon layer of issues to confront.

It is only prudent that we have a national conversation to analyze what is happening and how to put ourselves in the best position to maximize the benefits from these forces and minimize their costs.

As this publication will show, many companies and communities are already taking steps to address today's issues. Our hope is to encourage and disseminate the most effective of these practices.
