August 21st CMSACS Networking Lunch

Dear Central Mass ACS Local Section Member,

Are you going to the National ACS Meeting in Boston from August 19-23rd?

Do you like networking as a way to grow your professional brand and stay connected within the field?

Do you eat lunch?

If you answered "YES!!" to all of these questions, then we are happy to inform you that the CMACS Local Section is hosting a "Local Section Only Networking Lunch" on Tuesday, August 21st from 11:30am-1:30pm in the Seaport District (Restaurant TBD) near the Boston Convention Center.

There is no such thing as a "free lunch" and regrettably this event is no different, but there is such thing as a "heavily subsidized lunch" so for the low cost of $10 you will be provided lunch near the Boston Convention Center and a chance to network with local section colleagues and CMACS leadership.

To RSVP for this event, please send an email to Matt Grandbois (grandboismatthew@gmail.com) by Friday August 10th. Further event details will be communicated prior to the event to all RSVP'd guests.

Please come join us and enjoy one of the special perks of being a Central Mass ACS Location Section member!
