Webinar 3: Connecting & Contributing to Community

July 14, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

A number of initiatives have emerged in Southern MD during the COVID-19 pandemic that demonstrate the rapid response, spirited collaboration, and adaptive thinking that are hallmarks of thriving innovative communities. A working group has come together to highlight this adaptive thinking and innovative responses to community needs throughout southern MD.  We recognize that there are many more people who want to be doing and/or contributing more.

Join us for a three-part webinar series designed to unleash the talent, expertise and resources of people like you are eager to make a difference in this challenging time. This will be more than just information-sharing! We are bringing together people and groups to identify Southern Maryland’s needs during COVID and to collaborate creatively to address them.

The Southern MD community is a strong and innovative community.
We can – Adapt. Respond. Thrive.
