Our Special Annual Events
In addition to our full calendar of programming and events, we host a few one-of-a-kind events each year.
This event brings together SBN’s highly engaged and committed members to celebrate SBN’s accomplishments over the past year, share plans for the year ahead, weigh-in on governance items such as the election of new Board Members, and connect with members of the triple bottom line business community.
SustainaBall is the region’s premier event celebrating the localism movement and the impact economy. Each year, SBN’s gala brings together upwards of 300 guests from across industries and sectors to recognize the region’s inspiring local entrepreneurs who are using their business as a force for good.
All proceeds support SBN’s mission to build a just, green, and thriving economy in the region.
Excellence in GSI Awards
The Excellence in GSI Awards Ceremony is the region’s only event that celebrates and elevates green stormwater infrastructure projects, the triple bottom line benefits of GSI, and the many innovative public and private partners who make these projects successful.
We are advancing this local industry as a catalyst to drive investments in communities that spark deeper social, environmental, and economic change. When we celebrate GSI, we are celebrating GSI as one of many tools to build a more just, green, and thriving local economy. We believe this is a reason to celebrate and we hope you do as well.
Each December, more than 125 of SBN’s members, sponsors, allies, and friends merrily celebrate the holidays, the successes of the year behind us, and what lies ahead for the sustainable business community. Guest enjoy local food and beverages while exploring connections with other local champions as well as with conscious consumers.
