Engage for Good (formerly The Cause Marketing Forum)
May 31-June 1 // Chicago, IL

This field of companies and causes doing well by doing good together has changed enormously since 240 souls gathered at the first CMF conference in 2003. There’s still a huge way to go, but corporate social initiatives are becoming more longterm, integrated and strategic than the more promotional efforts we focused on back in the early days. In keeping with that evolution, we’re excited to share we’re changing our name from the Cause Marketing Forum to Engage for Good. It’s a brand that better reflects our mission of helping companies and causes succeed together by engaging consumers and employees in a variety of ways.”
