On October 24-26, thousands of sustainable business professionals and students will descend upon Silicon Valley for the 2013 Net Impact conference. Our PGS Net Impact chapter is a co-host this year, curating 6 conference tracks, and bringing the most members of any Net Impact chapter in the country.  We’re also up for Chapter of the Year!
