(Baltimore, Md.) – On May 25th, the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) will host its 2023 Annual Meeting, the first since its merger with the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore (EAGB). During the event, expected to be attended by more than 700 of the Greater Baltimore Region’s top leaders in business, technology, education, real estate, and the civic community, new President & CEO Mark Anthony Thomas and the GBC team will unveil their multi-year agenda to advance the region.

“As an organization, we’ve been incredibly busy over the last few months growing our team, introducing a new board chair, forming new partnerships, and bringing a renewed vision for the GBC to life,” said Thomas. “We’ve been thoughtful while moving with purpose and intensity. To deliver large-scale transformative change that advances a thriving Greater Baltimore Region, we will need the buy-in, support, and participation of the business community from across all sectors, industries, and corners of the map, along with our community leaders and elected officials. I’m looking forward to working with everyone to keep the momentum going.”

The GBC will introduce a brand-new format intended to feel more celebratory than past annual meetings, replacing a formal seated dinner with an open floor plan where guests can mingle, partake in various interactive activities, and enjoy Baltimore-themed cuisine and cocktails. A brief program will allow for the first official introduction of Thomas, who joined the GBC in December 2022, as well as other key leadership who have been brought on in recent months including the GBC’s 35th board chair, Mohan Suntha, MD, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS).

“Today marks a critical moment in the future of the region, bringing together key individuals united on the goal of advancing Baltimore and our surrounding communities into the future. I am honored, privileged and proud to be chairing the GBC as the organization dedicates our collective attention toward actively improving the region with an optimistic view toward the future,” said Dr. Suntha.

During the event, the GBC will unveil its multi-year agenda, announce its newest partner who will help develop a Regional Economic Opportunity Strategy to guide public and private investments that support a thriving Greater Baltimore region, roll out a new membership model, and share a first look at two website prototypes being developed in partnership with Baltimore-based firm Mindgrub Technologies.

The GBC 2023 Annual Meeting will take place at Baltimore Peninsula and is open to all. Tickets are available for purchase online at
