The Economic Development Department will host its annual Fall Meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 7 at the Greater Waldorf Jaycees Community Center (3090 Crain Highway, Waldorf) from 8 a.m. to noon. The event theme this year is, “The Evolution of Charles County: A New Spin on Traditional Industries.”

The Fall Meeting is an opportunity to learn how new and evolving industries are contributing to the area’s economic potential and vitality. As part of the program, influential community leaders from the public and private sector will take part in panel conversations focused on the future of entrepreneurship in Charles County, the shifting nature of the retail industry, and the impact Maryland’s new medical cannabis industry will have on the county. These panel discussions will encourage and inspire attendees to build relationships that can work toward common goals.

“The Fall Meeting serves as a point of reflection, but more importantly, as a discussion of the future,” said Darrell Brown, director of the Economic Development Department. “Understanding how to properly evolve industries and encourage new ones is how we keep Charles County an influential part of Maryland’s economy.”

Sponsorship opportunities include several support levels with various packages for business exposure. These packages include benefits such as ads in the printed program, business recognition in all marketing materials, as well as event signage. Sponsorship level contributions are available from $400 to $1,800.
