Area chamber among top four finalists for citizenship award
The Baltimore-Washington Chamber of Commerce was named one of four finalists nationally for the 2004 Corporate Citizenship Awards, presented by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Center for Corporate Citizenship. The chamber is a finalist for the U.S. Chamber Community Service Award.
The chamber staff produces and manages an annual one-day mathematics symposium for middle- and high-school teachers, which is in its 11th year. The program, for math teachers in Howard, Anne Arundel, Prince George's and Montgomery counties, provides an opportunity for the region's business community to present real-world mathematics to teachers so they can better prepare their students for the business world.
The National Security Agency, BWI Development Council, Howard and Anne Arundel county public school systems, PBS&J; in Beltsville, Constellation Energy Group and United Parcel Service supported this year's symposium.
The awards presentation dinner was held Dec. 2 in the International Hall of Flags at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington.
