Conscious Capitalism 2013 drops mandatory blogging requirement

The organizers of Conscious Capitalism 2013 have changedcon their policy and will not require bloggers to write at least two posts to avoid a conference admission charge.

I received this note from Working for Good CEO Jeff Klein:

Dear Jim,

I am writing to let you know that we are changing our press policy for Conscious Capitalism 2013 and apologize for what was apparently an inappropriate policy.

As a small non-profit, with few hands and a lot to handle, we accepted a policy someone had used for another event, which they told us was “standard policy,” in the new environment with an almost infinite community of bloggers. Boy were we wrong!

We’re truly sorry for any offense that you may have felt and assure you that we welcome you to Conscious Capitalism as a non-paying member of the media, regardless of what you write (or don’t write) before or after the event.

Please let me know if you have any questions and concerns, and thank you for paying attention to Conscious Capitalism, and considering its relevance to you, your readers and society.

With gratitude for your understanding (and, as appropriate, forgiveness).
