MEDA Event: 2018 Economic Development Day in Annapolis

  • This event has passed.

Join us for MEDA’s Annual Economic Development Day in Annapolis.

Economic Development Day, in partnership with the Maryland Department of Commerce, brings together elected and appointed officials from around the state with economic development professionals for one day to celebrate and explore efforts to bring jobs and investment to Maryland. As we gather in the state capital, there is special focus on the role of public policy in creating an environment that puts Maryland in a competitive position with other states. All members of the General Assembly have been invited by MEDA, but we encourage you to reach out to your local influencers, and encourage them to attend.

The day is designed to provide an opportunity to network with elected and appointed officials, highlight your business in a unique location, share how our diverse industry sectors play a vital role in the state’s economic climate, and represent economic development to all our partners.

Senator Thomas M. Middleton, the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Delegate Kumar P. Barve, the House Environment Transportation Committee, will discuss the issues related to economic development that are considered in their committees, and give insight into how members of their committees deliberate on the impact of state public policy on jobs and investment in Maryland.

Industry sectors including telecommunications, biotechnology, manufacturing, health care, cyber security, and others will come together to highlight their transformative statewide economic development efforts. Do you create opportunities? Do you inspire innovation? Do you enrich communities? Maximize your time and join us in Annapolis to share your message.
