Managing the Regional Chapter

Regional Chapters

The Idea

A Regional Chapter is recognized by CASI as a virtual local constituent, with the objective to develop a platform and facilitate professionals to come together, meet, learn, and interact on the theme of sustainability and CSR.
A local chapter enables this, by organizing events and providing opportunities to its local community of professionals for Volunteering, Networking, and Building Knowledge.

The primary goal of CASI: to disseminate the knowledge of sustainability & CSR and to enable professionals from all walks of life to come together on a common platform: is profoundly supported by local chapters.
Regional Chapters play a very important role and manages key stake holders including CASI credential holders, academia, industry and community at large.  Finally, it’s all about empowering professionals with knowledge and skillsets to integrate sustainability within their business models.

Managing the RC

The regional Chapter is a virtual extended arm of CASI.
The goal of the Regional Chapter is to further the vision of CASI: to promote the understanding and cause of CSR and sustainability. Such a chapter is managed by a team elected every 12 / 24 months as directed.
Members of the regional chapters: members of such a chapter may be enrolled in two ways: 1. By virtue of clearing the CASI examination. And 2 by paying the necessary fees of the regional chapter in case the person is not a CASI credential holder.

Connecting the DOTS…

Mentoring the Student Associate Credential holders

One of the primary goals of the Regional Chapter is to mentor the student associate certified members.  The final outcome of such mentoring is to help them in developing an in depth understanding of how sustainability can be incorporated in business strategy and also assist in placements.

Engaging with CASI Student Chapters

Students are encouraged to join the student chapters at their institutes. These are institute level arms of CASI to encourage students to learn the business implications of sustainability.  Such members may or may not be CASI certified. Nevertheless, it is our responsibility to guide and handhold them.
One of the core responsibilities of the regional chapters is to mentor and guide the members of such student chapters.
