The Boston Area Chapter hosted the annual Summer Golf Tournament on August 18 at the beautiful Kernwood Country Club in Salem, Massachusetts. The sun was shining on this perfect summer day as ISPE Members and guests from all over New England put their busy schedules aside to join in a fun-filled day of golf and networking. In addition to the gorgeous weather, the course was spectacular and the staff went over and above to make the day a success.




The day started with an impressive buffet lunch ensuring that no one went out on the course hungry. Once play began, laughs and cheers could be heard from every direction – a good sign that the day was another big success for the Chapter. After an elegant dinner, awards were presented to the lucky winners. In addition to a thoroughly enjoyable event, the many great raffle items and putting contest succeeded in raising $2,535 for the Chapter’s Joel Goldenberg Memorial Scholarship Fund. 

Congratulations go to our winning foursomes, our six individual winners and putting contest winner Mike Mattau, the only person to sink the 10-foot putt:

Members Enjoy Charlestown Waterfront at Summer Social

by Jim Grunwald, Commissioning Agents.

Attendees at the Chapter’s Summer Social enjoyed a warm summer evening and a spectacular view of Boston at Pier 6 in the Charlestown Navy Yard on July 23. The turnout was excellent with many longtime Chapter Members mingling with a large contingent of new Members and Young Professionals. Outgoing Chapter President Dan Ramsey used the occasion to deliver his final comments as Chapter President and introduce Incoming President Chris Opolski, who takes over from Dan in August. 

Summer Weather, a View of the Boston skyline, and the company of friends and colleagues-who could ask for more?!

Heading Home was the evening’s designated charity and beneficiary of donations by Chapter Members. Heading Home provides emergency, transitional and permanent housing and support services to low-income homeless and formerly homeless families and individuals in Greater Boston. The evening raised over $650 via a 50/50 raffle, with longtime Chapter Member and volunteer Aarash Navabi the lucky winner. Thanks to Aarash for generously donated his winnings back to Heading Home, a gesture appreciated by all attendees.

And a big thank you to the Chapter’s Social Committee for organizing another great event and enlisting the Chapter’s support for a very deserving charity. We recognize Social Committee members Dan Kenny, Fasha Onorato, Paul Sullivan and Jim Grunwald for their efforts on behalf of the Chapter.

On Thursday, September 4, the Boston Area Chapter Young Professionals sponsored an evening boat cruise touring Boston Harbor to kick off the season. Over 60 attendees, both young and seasoned professionals, boarded at Rowes Wharf and set sail for what was the most successful YP harbor cruise to date. The congenial crowd enjoyed the perfect weather, great views of Boston and the surrounding islands and non-stop networking and socializing. Attendees included new Members of the Chapter who had a perfect opportunity to meet other people from various areas of the industry. Overall, a fun time for all who attended!
