A Message from our Executive Director

MassCUE community,

As 2022 draws to a close we take a moment to look back and reflect upon this incredible year. Despite the ups and downs, we are still glowing from seeing many of you in person at Gillette Stadium in October! That sense of normalcy and nostalgia filled us with so much joy. Now, as we look forward into 2023, we are excited about the possibilities. Over the next month we will be analyzing our survey results to see what YOU want from MassCUE this year. In the meantime, we hope you find time to rest, reflect, and resolve.


With gratitude,
Savvy Demers
