A Note From Our President

I’m excited to welcome the entire SHPE Boston membership to the new 2017-2018 fiscal year. We are focusing on rebuilding the chapter leadership internally so that we can offer the best programming across Professional Development, University Relations, and Community Outreach to have the most impact in our community! We have a lot of energy and some fresh new faces that will provide the boost that we need to provide some exciting workshops, networking opportunities, and volunteering opportunities. Let’s all invest in a greater tomorrow, join us!
