Maryland Day:Explore Our World!

A New Member Orientation

Dear Colleague,

As Maryland Day is the university’s largest community outreach event, we’ve designed this site to support you and other campus event planners participating in the program.

In this site you will find information including key contacts, committee descriptions, meeting dates, important deadlines, marketing tools, helpful hints and more.

Over the past ten years, we’ve achieved great success with the Maryland Day program. In the process, we’ve worked together to refine systems, synchronize efforts and build what is now considered an anticipated event of the region.

Thank you for your time, dedication and partnership. It’s because of you that Maryland Day continues to grow.

We look forward to working with you and hosting our best Maryland Day yet on Saturday, April 26, 2008.Warm Regards,Brodie

Brodie RemingtonChair, Maryland Day ProgramVice President, University Relations
