Meet Your Chapter Leaders

Rhode Island Chapter Leader Robert Maher

Robert E. Maher '71

Lives in: Wakefield, Rhode Island

Major: Marketing

Occupation: Retired Software Industry Executive

Favorite BC Memory: My fondest memories include meeting so many new students from around the country and making lifetime friendships. I had come from a small parochial school (St. Mary's High School in Brookline, Massachusetts) and so it was all quite a new experience for me.

Why did you get involved in your local chapter?: My wife Carolyn and I moved to South Coastal Rhode Island during the summer of 2018 and I wanted to maintain contact with BC and meet fellow alums who live in our new home state. I learned that the Rhode Island chapter had gone dormant and volunteered to restart it.

What are your local favorites in your city?: A few local favorites:
1) Great seafood restaurants: we have many to choose from with the freshest seafood and spectacular ocean views!
2) Running and biking on the beautiful South County Bike Path.
3) Facilitating my Cancer Support Group at our Parish adjacent to URI campus.
