The mission of the GO Committee is to help the Chapter reach its goal of “Serving All of New England” by engaging members who live and/or work outside the immediate Boston area. To do this, the committee holds GO events throughout the year at “hub” locations including Portsmouth, Worcester and Providence/Warwick. The GO committee works independently and in synergy with other committees to create programming for its constituents. Collaborations include the EPC, Membership, Communications, Student Development and YPC Committees.
In order to accomplish its goals, the committee’s activities include:
Surveying members in the local “hub” geographies
Holding events responsive to local members’ needs ranging from networking meetups to educational and social events
Promoting ISPE membership and its benefits outside the Boston area
Encouraging local member involvement
Collaborating with educational institutions and other local organizations active in the life sciences arena
Establishing new “hubs” to further expand the Chapter’s reach and provide the benefits of membership to an ever wider population of members
The GO Committee is a great choice for volunteers living and/or working outside the greater Boston-Cambridge area who value the benefits of Chapter membership and want to help the Chapter extend its offerings to members throughout New England.
