Annually, ULEM honors its mission by hosting 3 signature events, our Annual Meeting, Gala, and Jobs Rebuild Boston Community Conference and Career Fair. 

Annual Meeting

ULEM hosts its annual meeting every December to share with the community the impact that has been made during the most recent fiscal year.  During this time, ULEM also celebrates the holiday season with a reception post the meeting.  If interested in receiving the most recent annual report, please send an email to


ULEM’s annual awards gala is, by far, one of the most important events that provides unrestricted, financial support for daily operations.  Specifically, the proceeds from the gala supports our programs and overhead expenses, which can only be covered by unrestricted funding.

The awards gala is held during the spring, typically in April.  It is always attended by corporate partners, community leaders, elected officials, the community at-large, our auxiliary memberships, and staff.

Past corporate funders include Eastern Bank, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, State Street Corporation, UPS and several others.

Past awardees have been corporate champions, community activists and leaders, professional athletes, small business owners, and ULEM board members. 

If interested in volunteering for or attending the gala, please send an email to
