Event Details


Superstorm Sandy was a stunning wake-up call for coastal communities in the Northeast, even those such as Boston that escaped the worst of the storm's impact.  As New York governor Andrew Cuomo said, "Part of learning from this is the recognition that climate change is a reality, extreme weather is a reality … There’s only so long you can say, ‘This is once in a lifetime and it’s not going to happen again.’"

Please join TBHA's trustees, staff and members at our annual meeting on November 27th from 5 to 7 pm at the law offices of Bingham, One Federal Street, Boston (nearest T station:  South Street).  Bingham is generously providing refreshments.

After a social hour and a brief business meeting, TBHA's president Vivien Li, and UNH professor Dr. Paul Kirshen will lead a discussion of the current science behind sea level rise, what we can expect over the next century, and what can be done to make Boston's waterfront and downtown more resilent to coastal flooding. 

Please note that Hurricane Sandy did postpone TBHA's board meeting where we would have voted on our annual awards; they will instead be given out at our fundraiser in April. 

Space is limited, so please RSVP early.  We hope to see you there!
