In 2017, Destination Better launched the Tampa Bay Corporate Responsibility Network, TBCRN, which aims to bring together talented professionals in the Tampa Bay region who either work in, profess or want to advance the areas of corporate responsibility, corporate citizenship, community relations, philanthropy, or sustainability.

The Framework

The focus of this group is to foster local connections to collaborate more effectively to benefit our members, our professions, our field and our communities. As we continue to grow, our current framework will remain true as a for-the-people by-the-people run group.

The Professionals

Our LinkedIn Group has grown to more than 60 individuals from a variety of backgrounds and organizations within the community—and, we’re always looking for more professionals who want to contribute. Each of the group’s participating individuals are focused on the social, environmental and economic risks and opportunities of organizations (company, government or nonprofit).
