On-Line


Description:

The BBA presents live webinars and virtual events via Zoom. Please register for this program through your BBA account at least two hours before the start time of the program to receive the Zoom webinar link. 

Please join the BBA's Veterans and Servicemembers Law Forum for a virtual meet and greet event. Our guest speaker for this pre-Veterans Day meeting of the Veterans and Servicemembers Law Forum will be Marc W. Knowlton from State Street Bank, a retired Coast Guard officer and State Street Managing Director who is also the State Street Veterans Network (VETNET) Senior Advisor.

Commander Knowlton will speak on the topic of veterans’ strength in leadership, stemming from leadership as the focus and source of success in our armed forces.  He will draw from and share his own personal experiences on the topic from various Coast Guard missions over his approximately 20 years of service, including seizing shrimpers in coral reef-protected zones, alien migration interdiction (mostly from Cuba), multiple hurricane responses, riding out a hurricane on a Coast Guard cutter, 9-11 response coordination from CGHQ, a budgetary perspective from his role as CFO of the CG’s Deepwater Horizon response, search and rescue and icebreaking here in Boston, and many other experiences, including his work as a civilian in building up the Veterans Network at State Street Bank. After Commander Knowlton’s remarks, we invite forum members to stay and get to know each other during an informal networking session.
