    Dear colleague, 

    We would like to invite you and your colleagues to submit a case for the Social Impact & Sustainability track at next year's Annual Meeting of the North American Case Research Association (NACRA), to be hosted in San Antonio (Texas) from October 8-10, 2020

    The deadline for ALL submission of cases is June 15, 2020

    NACRA Annual Meeting is a unique opportunity to engage with other leading case researchers in a small-group format, to receive detailed and constructive feedback about your case, and to participate in presentations from experienced case researchers and educators. Our distinctive round-table track design provides an excellent professional opportunity to enhance your abilities to develop higher-quality participant-centered and discussion-based cases in Social Impact & Sustainability. 

    The Social Impact & Sustainability track encourages and welcomes the submissions of teaching cases that relate to socially and environmentally responsible organizations, including but not limited to, social entrepreneurship, social business, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), non profits organizations, impact investment, microfinance, social innovation, new legal structures, B Corps, etc. The cases can be related to any functional area (Marketing, Finance, Accounting, HR, Operations, etc) and any vertical industry. We also encourage submission from different geographical perspectives as NACRA keeps growing its international presence. 

    Undisguised decision-focused cases based on primary sources (interviews, field visits) are highly preferred. Although cases may be disguised, they must be based on real events and real people in real organizations. Submitted cases may have been previously taught, but must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere (journals, books, online) before the October 2020 conference.

    Please see the conference links on the NACRA website for submission and formatting instructions www.nacra.net

    We look forward to hearing from you and hope to include you and your colleagues in our track next year.

    Best wishes,
