 Executing effective communications programs …

Upholding the Ethical professional practice of public relations …

Creating conversations that clarify issues & connect the world …

On December 1, we gathered together at the Hilton Baltimore for the 2015 “Best in Maryland” Awards Gala & Holiday Party to celebrate our colleagues’ professional achievements. We also honored four special nominated individuals for their contributions to and support of the public relations industry.


The evening started with a networking reception in the beautiful foyer overlooking Camden Yards. We then moved to the ballroom for dinner and a keynote by meteorologist Justin Berk, Just In Weather, LLC. The highlight of the evening was of course our awards ceremony where we presented awards in 26 categories and unveiled the Best In Show.
