Yankee Chapter members and guests were treated to an insider’s view of last summer’s Market Basket protest of the firing of long-time CEO Arthur T. DeMoulas at the chapter’s Annual Meeting November 20 at Red River Theatre in Concord.

Tom Bebbington moderated a panel discussion that featured Adam Vaccaro, of Boston.com who covered the protests from beginning to end, and Jim Fantini, a long-time vendor to Market Basket who orchestrated the We Are Market Basket Facebook group employees used to organize and rally.

Following the presentation, Jason Alexander, founder of Alexander Technology Group was presented the chapter’s annual Patrick Jackson Award.

During the business segment of the meeting, members elected next year’s chapter leadership team, headed by president Erin Hathaway of CCA for Social Good. See the entire 2015 slate.
