Boston MPUG “Summer In The City” Social Event:
MPUG Boston – Like You’ve Never Seen It Before!
The Boston Chapter of MPUG (Official Industry Association for Microsoft Project) will be holding its first Summer Social Event on Tuesday August 14, at the Microsoft New England Research and Development Center (The NERD). This unique event is our way of introducing our membership to the Microsoft Cambridge Campus, encouraging our regular attendees to make the shift from the Waltham facility, and inviting new friends to join us from the greater Boston area!
Come “Summer In The City” and join the MPUG Boston Chapter for our first Summer Social Event at Microsoft’s world class center for research and innovation in the heart of Cambridge, Massachusetts. This “venue with a view” provides a unique environment to network with colleagues old and new and forms a perfect backdrop to showcase MPUG Boston in a new light. Following our “Networking At The NERD” we will have a “Kendall Square Stroll” to check out the local sites and the expanded Microsoft facility at One Cambridge Place to be followed by further socializing at one of the many neighborhood nightspots.
This social networking event will be held at the Microsoft New England Research and Development Center (The NERD), 1 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA 02142. Cost for the event is free for members and $15 for non-members. Food, soft drinks and special treats will be served.
