Celebrating the Best in Maryland

How would you like to honor someone who has made a great contribution to our profession? Well, the Best in Maryland (BIM) Awards gives you a chance to do just that by providing many opportunities for our members to be recognized for their work and their accomplishments. These awards include the Best in Maryland Awards and Professional Awards..
