Emerging Leaders

Raising A Reader MA’s Emerging Leaders (EL) was conceived and established by the RAR MA Board of Directors as independent group with its own Board structure in order to raise awareness of RAR MA to young professionals in the greater Boston area.  Emerging Leaders is a membership based group, whose participants regularly contribute to the progression of the organization’s core mission and develop into potential future leaders, specifically as EL and RAR MA Board members.

EL members apply to participate in the group and are required to raise at least $250 for RAR MA each year. Applications are reviewed and accepted by the RAR MA EL Board.

President – Justin Hayward – Cross Coastal Advisors
Vice President – Marketing – Josh Schaer – Operating Partner, Freshii Boston
Treasurer – Josh Shotts – LUTCF Partner, Ironside Insurance Group, LLC
Public Relations – Brooks Finnegan – Senior Account Executive, National Financial Partners (NFP) Corp.
