About the BPMA: The Boston Product Management Association is the only professional association in the Greater Boston region dedicated to product management and product marketing professionals. Our members include product managers, product marketing managers, brand managers and other business professionals engaged in activities relating to the management or development of B2B products or services. Our membership includes over 3,000 members. Typical attendance at monthly meetings is about 30 to 50 members.
Logistics: Most BPMA meetings are held in the office facility of Constant Contact, 1601 Trapelo Road, Waltham, MA 02451. Alternate locations for BPMA meetings may be the Microsoft NERD Center or other Boston region facilities. Please check the specific event details to confirm the location.
Registration starts at 6:15 PM, which is a good time to show up so you can meet members of our board, and have an opportunity to meet audience members before the presentation.
To get to Constant Contact:
1. Take route 128 toward Waltham.

Enter the building at the main entrance. Proceed straight past the information desk and take the elevator to the 3rd floor.
Presentations: Events are held in a large meeting room with capacity for over 100 attendees. Time and space are provided for networking before and after the presentation. BPMA, in conjunction with Constant Contact (or respective facility host) can provide a projector, screen and will attempt to accommodate other material you need.
