What is the origin of the Boston Area Sustainability Group (BASG)?
Circa 2009, our friend and peer, Rich Goode, started hosting small dinners in Boston to gather fellow sustainability practitioners together for shop talk. Interest grew and in 2011, he passed the torch and the task of organizing BASG events to Carol Baroudi and Bob Pojasek, who ushered in the era of the CIC in Kendall Square. Becky Snowe joined the crew for over a year until a great job in Baltimore stole her away. Enter Holly Fowler in 2014, followed by Tilly Pick in 2015, when Bob took leave for other endeavors. That’s our story.

What are event registration fees used for?
We love the Venture Cafe and while the CIC is a terrific longtime partner, the space isn’t free and we respect that. Your fees therefore help us to cover venue rental, those nifty name tags, the occasional license for sharing media, outreach platforms, and nominal marketing efforts when we can afford it.

How can I learn about upcoming events?
Upcoming events are announced on this website under Current Event as well as on the BASG LinkedIn Group and Facebook page. You can also asked to be added to our mailing list to receive notice via our Eventbrite registration platform.
