When the clock strikes 8pm on Monday, January 13th the meeting industry will descend upon the House of Blues Boston to party down and pay-it-forward.

You’ll bask in the music, the people, the conversations, and the unexpected. Then there’s the “feel good” - Your participation supports the PCMA Education Foundation, College Bound Dorchester, and PCMA’s Network for the Needy – a three-fer for the price of one ticket.

We’re going to party like its 2014 – cause it is. See you there.
