Interested in Joining the Social Enterprise Revolution?
Building Chicago’s community of mission-driven ventures.

Membership in SEA gives you access to a community of people and organizations who share the same passion for social change and grapple with the same unique challenges as you do. Our members understand the challenges of achieving a double bottom line, and at SEA we understand that having a strong network of allies will give you the growth and support that you need.

A vibrant network of local chapters is vital to our aim of helping social enterprise reach its full potential as force for positive social change. Within our vision of a social enterprise ecosystem, they play a key role.

Chapters support our goal of making membership in SEA indispensable and accessible to anyone who self-identifies with the field. Local value is the third leg to the member value stool that also includes Direct Value and Collective Value.

SEA Chapters are typically started by a handful of local leaders in a local market that has a critical mass of SEA members or potential members. They are guided by strong local Boards that develop the unique identity of the Chapter.

SEA supports their efforts through an evolving service model that is designed to maximize the local leaders’ ability to develop creative local programs, partnerships and initiatives while minimizing administrative burden effort.
