Chapter News

Welcome October; we have some big changes on the horizon.   Peggy Nelson the foundation and backbone of our Chapter for the past 24 years, will be retiring at the end of the year.  Please join me in congratulating Peggy for a long and wonderful tenure as the Executive Director.  Peggy has been instrumental in the success and growth of our Chapter and we wish her nothing but the best in her next chapter.  The executive team, with Peggy’s insight, reviewed the position and conducted interviews and are happy to announce Kristin Beane and her team at Endeavor, LLC will take over responsibilities.

Kristin and her team are well equipped as they currently are the Executive Director of FPA Massachusetts and New England as well as supported the FPA National Conference.  Kristin has 20 years of working FPA Chapter knowledge and we look forward to having her join our team.  Peggy will be here through the end of the year and will also join us for our January symposium as we transition the role to Kristin.  We hope you can join us at our January symposium as we recognize Peggy and welcome Kristin.
