The Greater Baltimore Committee’s fourth Next Up cohort opened its year of professional and personal development and networking opportunities with a March 30, 2021, virtual dinner, including a meal from The Capital Grille.
The kick-off event offered the new cohort members an opportunity to learn more about the GBC, socialize and meet GBC President & CEO Don Fry and members of the GBC Board of Directors. Four GBC Board members joined the cohort for dinner: Nancy Greene, Miles & Stockbridge; Bill McCarthy, Associated Catholic Charities, Inc.; Warner Mason, WebbMason Marketing; and Dr. David Wilson, Morgan State University.
Interest in the program — which accepts individuals who are 40 and under, employees of GBC member organizations, and identified and nominated by their organization’s CEO as demonstrating leadership within their organization as well as in a role external to their organization — was high, and acceptance into the program was very competitive for its fourth year. The 2021 cohort is the largest one yet with 33 members.
