New GBC Web site draws member praise

The Greater Baltimore Committee’s enhanced Web site has drawn favorable reviews from a number of members who have contacted us since the Web site was launched on November 25. The new format for the 12-year-old GBC Web site was designed by the G3 Group, a GBC member.

The site boasts a clean, modern design intended to make it easy for members to navigate the content-rich site and quickly find information and news about the GBC, its priorities for strengthening the region’s business climate, its members and its events.

“We are constantly striving to improve our communication to members. The GBC’s Web site is designed to make information about the GBC and the Baltimore region clear, understandable, and accessible,” said GBC president Donald C. Fry. “We combined feedback from our members with improved use of technology and Web 2.0 capabilities to incorporate many new and user-friendly elements into our site.”

The GBC site, which was launched in 1997, drew more than 4 million hits in the 2008. It includes a wealth of information about news and trends that impact the Baltimore Region’s business climate. Content ranges from a comprehensive home page calendar of upcoming GBC events to all of the major reports and studies issued by the GBC since 1997. The site also features specialized sections offering details about the GBC’s top priorities — regional transportation, bioscience, minority and women-owned business development, Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC), Baltimore and Washington, D.C. collaborative, energy solutions for Maryland, and building a world class workforce.

Comments and suggestions regarding the GBC’s new Web site format are welcomed. Please forward them to Diane Hughes or Gene Bracken.
