We had a successful 2014 Annual Meeting last week on May 14 at the Grand Historic Venue. It was wonderful to see so many long-time and new members and partners networking and enjoying the day!

We heard from Keynote Speaker Angela Glover Blackwell, Founder and CEO of PolicyLink who discussed "A Maryland That Works for All: Philanthropy's Equity Imperative."

And, we welcomed new Board Members and Officers, and thanked departing directors for their service. I would like to extend particular thanks to Beth Harber of The Abell Foundation for her leadership over the last two years as ABAG's Board Chair, and welcome Laurie Latuda Kinkel of The Goldseker Foundation as our new chair.
