Chapter Notes

Dear Boston Chapter Members,

A quick reminder that the Q1 2019 quarterly meeting is scheduled on Tuesday, March 26th at 11.45am.  Our friends at Selecta Biosciences have graciously agreed to host the meeting.  Selecta is located at 480 Arsenal Way, Watertown, MA  02472

This quarter’s topic is “leveraging your financial reporting expertise”.  There cannot be a more relevant topic to our Members, so I strongly encourage you to participate.  In addition to the content, this is a great opportunity to network with your peers, earn one hour of CPE and step away from the office.  Bring your colleagues.  

We encourage you to register in advance at  Participants will be eligible for 1 hour of CPE.  There is no cost to attend and lunch will be provided.  Thank you to our members who have already registered.

The success of the SEC Professionals Boston Chapter is because of you and your participation, for which we are grateful.  We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, March 26th.

Warm regards,


Joseph DiMartino

Boston Chapter Chair
