Maverick Local Update
As many of you know, we’ve successfully started two local chapters of Maverick with Baltimore (Charm City) and Washington DC (Capitol City). They are a small, but mighty groups of both cities’ top CEOs and distinguished founders.
The local chapters provide a way for Mavericks to connect, grow and make an impact on their local communities. Meetings are 1x/month with more intimate business focused round tables, impact days and unique experience days.
Business Breakthrough Roundtables, Impact Days and Experience Days
Check out the Maverick shenanigans some of our members got into at the Maverick Local Chapter Experience Day – “Spy School!” They experienced the real thrills, training and adventure of being a secret agent. From the looks of these pics they had waaaaay too much fun!

Impact Day: Kennedy Krieger Institute
The Charm City Mavericks having an amazing time at Kennedy Krieger Institute! They learned a bunch of new things about the brain in kids. Everyone was excited by the cutting edge research they’re developing.
Impact Day: Jubilee Arts
After having the opportunity to learn about Elder Harris’ plans to end poverty in the community and also to hear about the BDC’s short-term and long-term ideas and thoughts to assist the community following the riots, the Mavericks are continuing to stay connected.

“I LOVE my City of Baltimore and as many of you know I’m not an armchair quarterback! So after seeing the news repeating the same negative images of Baltimore over and over, I knew I had to do something! So I kicked into gear and launched #More4Bmore as a place for positive expression, a collection of suggestions, and a way for members (we don’t use the word volunteers) to help!”
