Dear BBA Community:
As we reflect on a year like no other, I would like to express my gratitude to our community who share our vision of Boston as the global hub of blockchain. Special thanks go to our incredible Vice Chair Sam Nathans, and all the Board members who are consummate professionals working tirelessly in support of our mission of bringing together innovators, collaborators, champions and entrepreneurs focused on fueling the promise of blockchain technology.
Special thanks to our Head of Partnerships Mike Wise, our Secretary Eric Roux, and our Treasurer Peter Brooks, as well as the rest of our Board: Warren Brown, Vincenzo Ciancio (new Membership Chair), Drew Cousin, David Cutler, John Hargrave, Stephen Leahy, and Nate Rand. Thanks also to our outgoing Board members Lili Chen and Caroline Dennis.
Most of all, thank YOU to our members and frequent attendees for being crucial partners in our continued success. We have some great events lined up for 2022, including Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, and an even bigger and better Boston Blockchain Week. Please join us!
Happy new year!
