Our annual fellowship luncheon and membership meeting will take place between these two sessions at 12:00 in the Vermont room at the Boston Marriott. As in the past, we will enjoy some time of fellowship and also have our annual business meeting. We expect to be able to introduce new officers at this meeting, and get a chance to thank our outgoing officers.

In order to offset the cost of the luncheon, we ask that those of you who plan to attend and are able to contribute to please donate $50 to the Association, which can be taken care of at the door.
