Our Annual Meeting is the top Greater Boston business convening of the year, and this year we are committed to bringing our community together *virtually*. Historically drawing more than 1,800 of the region’s leaders for a celebration of our Greater Boston business community and thriving economy, making this year even bigger, and more accessible than ever before.
Moving Boston Business Forward is the only direction. The future of work is here and our region and community are ready to take on the challenges of a changed world. Despite the true hardships, the Chamber’s diverse membership continues to lead the tough conversations and effort demanded to move our economy forward and keep our region, businesses, and people thriving long term. There is no going back, only forward together.
We welcomed leaders in business and government Governor Baker and Mayor Walsh; Nitin Nohria, PhD of Harvard Business School as presenting speaker, musical performances by Miranda Rae and Boston Arts Academy, and the newest award winners inducted into the Academy of Distinguished Bostonians: Andrew Dreyfus of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Lee Pelton, PhD of Emerson College, and Marcy L. Reed of National Grid.
This was an iconic event, one for the books. Thank you to all sponsors and members of the Chamber community for joining us. We hope to see you next year!
