On October 6, 2008 The Boston Black Professionals Meetup Group merged with The Professionals Network Organization USA (TPNO) based in New York City. As a result, we are also known as TPNO Boston/ New England Chapter where I will operate as the President.

The key objective of (TPNO) Boston/New England Chapter is to establish links between the organization and the community as well as the corporate, and political sectors, in the Boston/New England area.

The mission of The Professionals Network organization is to provide young upwardly mobile multi-cultural professionals with opportunities to obtain access to resources and information that will allow them to grow, and bring them closer to realizing the "American Dream" of becoming part of an Ownership Society.

Anthony "Tony" Herbert is the Founder and Chairman of The Professionals Network Organization and Teresa Martin Esq. is the General Counsel. She is also the Co-Organizer for the Boston Black Professionals Meetup Group.

The Professionals Network Organization (TPNO) also plays host to some of the most powerful networking events, forums, and round table discussions in New York City.

Established in 1996 and within 12 years, The Professionals Network Organization (TPNO), a coalition of non-partisan young ethnically diverse business professionals, entrepreneurs, community and business leaders; have established themselves as the premier network for those who look to be empowered economically, politically, and socially.

Despite our merger, we will continue to operate as The Boston Black Professionals Meetup Group.

The mission of the Boston Black Professionals Meetup Group is to provide an outlet for New Bostonian's and locals to Network, make business contacts, and hopefully make friends in a safe environment.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
