How would you like your work–whether a project, a campaign or a single tactic–to be featured among and then recognized by fellow local professionals? How would you like to honor someone who has made a great contribution to our profession? Well, the Best in Maryland (BIM) Awards gives you a chance to do just that by providing many opportunities for our members to be recognized for their work and their accomplishments.
