The Greater Boston Chapter of AABE® (the “Greater Boston Chapter” or the “Chapter”) was organized by a small group of energy professionals employed by National Grid USA, an international electricity and gas company based in the UK and northeastern US. This dedicated and committed group of energy professionals, representing a broad spectrum of National Grid's workforce, first defined and outlined the Chapter's key initiatives and then sought and received the support of National Grid's Senior Leadership Team.
The Chapter’s Articles of Organization were approved by the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on September 4, 2014. On September 26, 2014, the AABE National Association Board of Directors approved the Greater Boston Chapter's charter. On October 24, 2014, the Internal Revenue Service approved the Chapter as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit entity, effective as of September 5, 2014. And, on March 13, 2015, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts recognized the Chapter as a tax exempt entity.
