Date of Conference: MARCH 9-11, 2010
Location: Seaport World Trade Center in Boston
The NESEA (Northeast Sustainable Energy Association) BuildingEnergy 10 Conference has graciously donated an exhibition table to NEWIEE, and we are looking for NEWIEE members to help us organize and man (or woman) our booth. Last summer, we had over 100 new people sign up for NEWIEE at the Boston GreenFest, and we hope to reach out to even more potential new members at this conference and trade show.
For more on the NESEA conference, visit http://www.nesea.org/buildingenergy.
The conference will be held March 9-11 at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. We need 1-2 volunteers to organize a schedule of NEWIEE booth representatives and to help us set up our booth at the show. The setup is on March 9 (between 1 and 8pm), with exhibition hours on March 10 (10:30am – 7:00pm) and March 11 (10:00am – 4:00pm). One perk is that those helping to man the booth can also visit the trade show exhibits, which are exceptional!
To volunteer, contact both Gayle Koch (Gayle.Koch@brattle.com) and Kristin Brief (email@example.com).

Join us in celebrating NEWIEE’s first year with this social event — meet other NEWIEE members and enjoy the tasty treats available at Vlora Mediterranean Restaurant and Wine Bar, located in the heart of Back Bay.
With an emphasis on freshness and a minimalist cooking style, Vlora’s menu covers tastes from the Northern Mediterranean region encompassing Southern Italy, Greece, and Albania. The menu and wine list are an extension of the flavors and dishes served in Vlora, Albania, including exclusive handpicked wines and lovingly prepared signature dishes that are unmatched within the city.

During this fall, a NEWIEE member contacted the Event Planning committee chair regarding the upcoming 2010 event on Entrepreneurship and Legal Issues and offered to speak on related patent issues. Unfortunately, that email has been misplaced or lost! Many pardons, but please re-contact Gayle Koch at Gayle.Koch@brattle.com or call her at 617.864.7900, as she would like to include you in the panel being developed for early 2010.
We are now planning NEWIEE events for 2010. If you want to volunteer to host, speak, give a tour, or suggest an event idea, contact either Gayle Koch at Gayle.Koch@brattle.com or Kristin Brief at email@example.com.
We continue to work on creating NEWIEE’s permanent web site and hope to have it available in the coming weeks. One of its functions will be to serve as a forum for connecting applicants with potential employers within the group. This feature may include a job posting board and a resume repository, or a similar tool to share information about employment/internship opportunities among group members.
In advance of the web site becoming fully operational, if you have a position available to post on the site, please send your posting to Courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org, who will be collecting and organizing this information. Although resumes will not be collected at this time, please email Courtney if you would like to receive a copy of the postings periodically.
