Membership is open to any Maryland based Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. We encourage every SDVOSB to lend their voice to the team, as we work to make our platform heard in Annapolis. Small businesses that are not MD SDVOSB's will be considered for membership.
Benefits of membership include networking with other SDVOSB's, and getting first hand knowledge of working with state, local and federal agencies. Download the attached membership form, and return it. A membership package, including meeting information will be forwarded upon receipt of your application.
