Happy New Year!!

The Board is hard at work getting the Leagues and Events set up for 2014. This year we have a new Board model and at the time of the elections we did not have a full Board. I am happy to announce that we have filled the Communications & Marketing Director position. 

Please welcome Rosemary Astheimer to the Board. She will be working with the volunteers sending the newsletters, email blasts and website updates. She is also taking the responsibility for our marketing efforts. 

If you have suggestions for potential sponsors or other areas where we could market our Chapter, please drop Rosemary an email at

Only 60 days until Spring begins and 70 days until Kick Off. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Kate Collins
Director of Events & Competition
For the past several years, Joe and Leigh's has been our premiere sponsor and they have always provided excellent services, whether in the form of classes, equipment fitting or lessons. We are grateful and look forward to continuing our relationship with them.
We are looking for more local sponsors. If you know someone who you believe is interested in sponsoring our chapter, please let us know. Sponsors allow us to provide additional services, prizes, and larger events. Your help would truly enhance the member experience within the Boston Chapter.
