ASM Welcomes Jessica Martin

ASM Members Get a Spirited Lesson

A good time was had by all February 8th at ASM’s first member mixer of the year held at Cornwall’s in Kenmore Square. Those that attended sampled six great tastes including a full-bodied scotch and a smooth whiskey/port. Everyone received a lesson on how to correctly drink whiskey to appreciate all the subtle flavors (hint: always smell with your mouth open) and learned how the barrel impacts the taste of whiskey. It was a great networking opportunity for all that attended, complete with tasty appetizers and some fun whiskey knowledge. Thanks to our Sponsor Strang, Scott, Giroux and Young.

A Night at the Round Table with Representative Golden

ASM members didn’t let a “little” snowstorm on Thursday, March 8th keep them from enjoying an evening of great conversation and many laughs while discussing issues of importance to ASM members. The group literally “sat around the kitchen table” at The Plumbing Museum and talked with chair Golden about a variety of issues facing the commonwealth.

ASM is excited to welcome Jessica Perry Martin as the new associate director of marketing as of January of this year. Jess is responsible for the development, planning and promotion of all ASM events moving forward. She also manages ASM sponsorships and marketing programs. “We are lucky to have someone of Jess’ caliber join the ASM team,” states Carrie L. Ciliberto, ASM’s CEO. “Jess is very member-focused, and I am confident she will have an immediate and long-term, positive impact on the association’s events and communications.” She has more than 13 years of experience in marketing and event planning. “I am thrilled to be part of the ASM team,” says Martin. “I am looking forward to meeting all the members and working closely with them to develop some new and exciting programs.” She can be reached at jmartin@associatedsubs.com.
