About Dorchester
Dorchester Massachusetts is Boston's largest neighborhood and also its oldest, founded just a few months before the City itself.

The Neponset River provided the power for many manufacturing mills located in the lower mills section of Dorchester which is rich in history of the industrial age.

Today Dorchester retains its diversity and with the multi-family homes retains its suburban like feel.

Dorchester is home to the University of Massachusetts and the John F. Kennedy Library located at the tip of Columbia Point and visible from interstate 93.

"Through the Years: Soul Care for your Soul Mate" Marriage Conference with Gordon and Gail MacDonald
Through the Years: Soul Care for your Soul Mate

Spend a day with two of the greatest communicators of our times, Gordon and Gail MacDonald. Gordon and Gail will share the highs and the lows, the challenges and the joys, the laughter and the tears of over 60 years of marriage and ministry. 

Gordon and Gail are known around the world for their deep love for God’s word, His heart for the world, and His design for marriage. They have raised two children, now adults, and have poured into their grandchildren what it means to live life fully as Christ followers. Gordon currently holds the post of Chancellor of Denver Seminary. He and Gail speak around the nation and abroad, filling pulpits regularly. 

In three main sessions, Gordon and Gail will reflect on their 53-year marriage and why it’s more alive today than ever:

  • We kept things between us fresh and tantalizing (why we’ve remarried each other several hundred times).
  • We were determined to keep on growing (why we never got caught up in Dancing with the Stars).
  • We did our best to serve others (why we didn’t move to Florida and buy a boat).


  • Marriage and Ministry – Gail and Gordon MacDonald
  • Forgiveness in Marriage - Christopher and Dorothy Greco
  • Foundations to build on – Ryan and Kelly Plosker
  • Raising the next generation – Paul and Virginia Friesen
  • Keeping marriage the main event – Seth and Melanie Bilazarian
  • When Disney doesn't write the script – Gregg Meserole

HR Legal Update 2014 – What Employers Need to Know (Boston, MA)

HR Legal Update 2014

What Employers Need to Know


2014 has seen more rulings, court decisions and challenges to existing laws. Join our HR Division President, Lauren Brenner and Attorney Joseph Laferrera of Gesmer Updegrove LLP for an HR Legal Update to educate yourself on pertinent changes and interpretations in state and federal laws, NLRB decisions and EEOC guidelines, including:

  • President Obama’s last 3 appointments to the NLRB were ruled invalid. What does this mean for recent NLRB decisions including Banner Health System’s ruling which severely hampered an employer’s ability to investigate workplace misconduct?
  • NLRB’s recent rulings:
    • An employer’s policy regarding inappropriate behavior in the workplace violated the employee’s NLRA rights
    • Liking a Facebook page is considered concerted activity
    • Derogatory employee comments on an employer’s Facebook page is considered protected concerted activity
    • EEOC’s new pregnancy discrimination guidelines and ADA Accommodations for pregnant employees.
    • Bullying in the workplace – in the wake of California’s recent bullying in the workplace training requirement, what are the obligations of employers even without a specific workplace bullying law?
    • Next steps in the Affordable Care Act
    • The recent FMLA decision and its impact for employers:
      • What should an employer do if employees state they never received FMLA notice given the Mailbox Rule was dismissed by U.S. Court of Appeals?
      • Expert testimony is not needed to prove an employee was incapacitated?
      • The employee has used their FMLA time, and an employer cannot deny intermittent leave?
      • 21st century documentation challenges:
        • Cloud-based storage
        • E-mails and other electronic documents
        • Proper treatment of archives and back ups
