Women Mean Business
Wednesday, April 24th | 11:30am | Linthicum
Have you ever wondered why some teams out perform others?
High functioning teams don't just happen by accident.

Join us for our Women Mean Business luncheon on April 24th at SECU University in Linthicum.

High functioning teams are comprised of highly functional individuals who are adept at communicating their messages effectively. Communication and team building skills are foundational in today's fast paced ever changing professional landscape. By attending this work shop participants will be exposed to how to create powerful messages that instantly capture the attention of their audience and the principles successful teams employ to address the common plagues that move successful teams towards dysfunction.

Lunch is included. Please register by April 22nd!

Maintain "Good Standing" Status
Is your business in "Good Standing" with the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation? In order to maintain Good Standing status, your business must file the required annual reports and maintain compliance with all applicable Maryland laws. Failing to do so means your business may be deemed "Not in Good Standing" which can eventually lead to forfeiture. A forfeited entity may not legally conduct business in the State. Visit Maryland Business Express to learn more about restoring or maintaining Good Standing status.
