ARCS Social – October 16, 2018 in Boston MA

ARCS is pleased to announce our next networking social for both ARCS members and soon-to-be members.

October 16, 2018 6 -8 PM

Bostonia Public House
131 State St, Boston, MA 02109

These get-togethers are a wonderful way for you to get to know other registrars and collections specialists in your area. They are casual, (no sales pitches!) and fun. AND bring your business card, because at every ARCS Social there is a draw for a free one-year ARCS membership!

Generously sponsored by U.S. Art
