Boston-Chapter-Annual-MeetingAt its January 6th Annual Meeting, the Boston Chapter welcomed twelve new chapter members whose distinguished professional careers include real estate development, banking and finance, property law, architecture and urban design, environmental consulting and engineering, public service and academia. Over fifty members and guests attended the traditional Union Club luncheon event. Guest speaker Brian Golden, Director of the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) shared intriguing insights on how this powerful agency—responsible for both the City’s planning and its development functions—is becoming more professionally managed, more efficient and more transparent. He also updated the group on projects in the BRA’s pipeline—an impressive volume of commercial and residential development in Boston’s currently burgeoning market. Roger Blood Boston Chapter Scribe
