                   MEDA Awards
                       The MEDA Awards were created to recognize the
                        exemplary contributions our members make every day
                         to improving the quality of life in Maryland. Every
                          development project, redevelopment project, and
                          marketing program entered in the competition
                           is worthy of recognition. That’s why we list them
                           all in this program.

                          The State of Maryland deserves our thanks for its
                          ongoing support of economic development projects.
                         The judges were quick to note that nearly every entry
                         in the awards competition recognized the State of
                           Maryland as a partner in their endeavors.

                              Thank you for joining us this evening as we
                               pay tribute to our members who create, recreate
                                and innovate. The MEDA Award recognizes
                                 them for their excellence.
