President's Report

Happy Veterans Day Nor'easters!!

Veterans Day

To me it is always important to remember those among us who have given of themselves to serve this nation. Whether for a brief enlistment or a life-long career, every Veteran once wrote a check to the people of the United States valued at "up to and including thier life." Today Veterans live among us, they are our Fathers, Sisters, Brothers, Mothers, friends and take a moment and say thank you to them, because the freedoms we enjoy and hold dear are secured by their sacrifices.

Join us Dec 7th for the annual Holiday Dinner at Chopps American Bar and Grill in Burlington, MA

The frightening part of Veterans Day is that it means we are already in did that happen? 

The upside of November is that our annual Holiday Dinner is coming up. 

This year we are going to gather on Wednesday December 7th from 6-9 PM at Chopps in Burlington, MA. We are going to stray from the norm a little bit, in the past we have held this as a social only event, but this year we are going to bring a little bit of Chapter Business into our time together. We will kick the night off with a happy hour and Hors d'oeuvres, during which I want to encourage members to jot down on the flip chart things they would like to see from the Chapter in 2017. We will then enjoy a delicious sit down dinner with steak, chicken and hallibut options (your mouth is watering isn't it) and then during dessert we will look at the ideas folks came up with and brainstorm as a group about what we want Nor'easters 2017 to look like. So mark your calendars and click here to Register Today. I am already looking forward to seeing you there!

Call for nominations - 2016-2017 Board of Directors

2016 has been a good year for the Nor'easters chapter, it is hard to believe that just a few short months ago Bid & Proposal Con was here in our Chapter's area.  The great things we have done were all the result of our hard working board of directors. With 2016 coming to a close it is time to solicit self-nominations for our 2017-2018 board positions that are up for election.

The 2017-2018 Positions we are seeking nominations for are:

Membership Director - Vacant 
Sponsorship Director - Vacant
Strategic Programs - Heather Bernecker (Grill), incumbent

If you are interested in running for any of these positions please shoot me an email at with your name, the position you are interested in, a brief summary about why you are interested in the position, and a brief bio.  Remember you must be an active member of APMP and affiliated with the Nor'easters to serve on the board.  Please get your nominations into me by Friday December 2nd and we will have an electronic election shortly after.  If you have questions about the positions you can find info on our website or you can reach out to me directly.

A lot of info in this month's Beacon - I thank you for reading, if you are a Veteran I thank you for your service and I challenge all of you to...

Do great things,
