MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
Dear Boston INFORMS Member:
I write to wish you all a happy new year.
has been a good year for our chapter . Our talks in 2013 have spanned
social media to UPS Process Management to Complex Networks with an
especially strong set of speakers this year. Our membership is up slightly
and our finances are strong. Needless to say, this would not have happened
without the support of our members and the high level of effort and
activities of our officers (Victor Lo, Dan Rice, and Matt Flint) all of
whom have demanding day jobs.
Of course, we want to do even better for
If members are interested in participating more in any way,
again, please let me know. The strength of the chapter is in its members.
Of course, attending our meetings, encouraging colleagues to attend and
participating activity in our meeting is the most important way to
strengthen our chapter. While our Program Committee must approve all
talks, we encourage suggestions for future talks.
I cannot end such a
letter without a reminder to renew your membership to our Chapter. While I
hope you will join the national INFORMS organization you are not required
to in order to be a member of our Chapter. You might note that are dues
are quite modest.
The size of our membership and the participation of
our members helps us attract great speakers and makes the informal
gatherings before the meeting more interesting. If Facebook can raise its
membership to close to a 1 billion members I don't see why we cannot
double ours next year: we offer great talks, good food, and have more
interesting people to talk with. Please encourage your colleagues to
May 2014 bring you all you hope for.
Chair, Boston INFORMS Chapter
