Our Annual Meeting of the Membership is scheduled for March 22, at the Foundation. I look forward to this event every year! Not only do we invite all members to join us to review and celebrate our achievements in Fiscal Year 2022-2023 and kick off Fiscal Year 2023-2024, we celebrate the graduation of the Leadership 2.0 2022-2023 Cohort, and welcome our new and renewed members of our board of directors. It is also a great evening of cocktails and networking, I want to thank the current board, executive committee and advisory council for all their support and guidance this past year. I hope you can join us and help us kickoff Fiscal Year 2023-2024!

2023 Annual Ski Trip hosted by Young Leader Committee

On February 17 our Young Leader Committee hosted their Annual Ski Trip at Waterville Valley Resort with support from VVA Project & Cost Managers as event sponsor. The 40+ attendees hit the slopes with their colleagues and enjoyed networking with CRE fellow professionals during their apres ski.

In the spirit of Doing Well by Doing Good, we volunteered at the Boys & Girls Club Condon Center to help with an office clean-up on February 17. The Community Reinvestment Committee gathered a handful of members on a Friday afternoon to give back to the Boston community. The committee is looking for extra hands to help at this year’s Edgerley Family South Boston Club’s 84th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Road Race. RSVP to Christine Weiner ([email protected]) if you are interested.

Maureen Rystrom is the president/chair of CoreNet Global New England Chapter and vice president of marketing | partner at J. Calnan & Associates.
