We have an advanced contract with the University of Toronto Press (UTP) for an edited book based upon the case studies and provisionally titled: Social Purpose Enterprises: Case Studies in Doing Business Differently. The book will involve a unique look at the impact of social purpose enterprises for marginalized social groups. We would like to receive each project's chapter by September 30th, 2012. The chapter should discuss the business and present evidence of the impact of the business on the primary stakeholder groups. Each chapter should be about 7,000 words including references.

We assume that project teams will also find other outlets for the research - conferences, journals, etc. Regarding conferences, you might consider the Association for Nonprofit and Social Economy Research (ANSER) at the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University, May 30-June 1, 2012, as part of the Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences. The call for proposals, if you haven't received it, can be obtained from the ANSER Conference website

We also have an advanced contract with the University of Toronto Press for a second edited book, Management and Policy Issues for Social Purpose Businesses, based upon the final stage of the project. However, that is a long way off, and it is best if we focus upon the coming year.

Sincerely,

Jack & Sherida
