Welcome to the Boston Chapter!
The chapter had a fantastic 2018 culminating with the 60th Anniversary celebration for the chapter in November and a fun filled Holiday networking celebration in December.

I would like to welcome Steve Bertoni, Vice Chair, and Stewart Prue, Secretary, who will join Paul Baratta and I on the Executive Board. The 2017 the Board voted to experiment with the structure of the Executive Board by designating someone to serve as Assistant Treasurer. This additional role is in recognition of the size of our chapter and the complexity of the Treasurer’s duties. Bob Nicol, 2018-chapter Secretary, has been appointed to fill this role in 2019. I want to thank Marty Patnaude Riley for her valuable service as Vice Chair in 2018. Marty has a long history of volunteering her time for the success of the chapter including serving as Chapter Chair in 2002 and 2003. Thankfully Marty has agreed to continue her service to the chapter by being Communications Chair in 2019.I want to close by reminding members that we are always looking for new volunteers on the volunteer board or committees, to share goals and visions for the chapter. Please visit the Chapter website, a resource for you for coming events, industrywide events, the newsletter, a tool for communicating with your volunteer leaders, and other valuable information. We want Boston to be a successful chapter. Please feel free to reach out to any Board members or Committee Chairs with any questions, comments, or suggestions that you may have. This is your chapter, your input is greatly valued.
