CMAA New England is thrilled to go virtual! It goes without saying that this year has presented all of us with some extraordinary circumstances. After postponing our in-person event in May, CMAA New England has elected to host this year's Project Achievement Award program virtually. We have worked hard to pull together a concise and exciting program that you can enjoy. We hope you wil grab some lunch and join us as we celebrate our industries' finest. And as always, proceeds from this event go directly to our collegiate scholarship fund!

Have you registered yet? Well, you should! There will be a special video presentation on the creation of Boston Hope.  Boston Hope was a 1,000-bed field hospital at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, built in less than a week to address the April surge of COVID-19 in the city. The project represented a monumental team effort across disciplines and geography—it had to be done right, and it had to be done fast. We will hear from the people who were on the ground and behind the scenes to make this field hospital a reality.

Still haven't registered? Well, maybe our Keynote Speaker will change your mind, Brigadier General (ret.) Jack Hammond!

Retired Brig. Gen. Jack Hammond, executive director of the Home Base Program, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital program, led the build-out and operations Boston Hope. He’ll follow an incredible video presentation highlighting the Suffolk 7 day build out of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center to become Boston Hope.  He’ll address the behind the scenes back story of determining its need, key decision making and address the challenges and logistics to address the rest of the Boston Hope story.

Brigadier General (ret.) Jack Hammond is the Executive Director for the Home Base Program, which is a partnership between the Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Red Sox. Home Base has provided mental & brain health care and support for more than 20,000 Veterans and military families over the past decade and established the nation’s first private sector center of excellence for the invisible wounds of war.

General Hammond has advised President Obama’s Commission on Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization & delivered remarks at the White House Veterans and Military Family Mental Health Conference. Hammond has advised President George W. Bush’s Warrior Wellness Alliance, Secretary Bob McDonald’s My VA Advisory Committee, Governor Mitt Romney’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, and Governor Charlie Baker’s Healthcare Transition Team Veteran Advisory Council. A proven combat leader General Hammond simultaneously commanded two separate Battalions in Iraq, and as a General officer, he effectively led a multi-national NATO Task Force in Afghanistan. His military awards and decorations include the Distinguished Service Medal, two Legion of Merit Medals one for combat service, the Bronze Star Medal, two Meritoriously Service Medals, five Army Commendation Medal one for Valor, two Valorous Unit Awards, the Combat Action Badge, the French Medal of National Defense, and the Bulgarian Medal of Mission Support.

General Hammond holds Degree’s from the University of Massachusetts, Boston University, and has completed a National Security Fellowship at Harvard University.
