News Release, St. Mary’s County Department of Economic Development

In response to COVID-19, self-forming teams in Southern MD are demonstrating the spirited collaboration and adaptive thinking that are hallmarks of innovative communities. Join us for the third webinar of a 3-part action series that takes lessons from these teams to unleash the talent and resources of all who want to help Southern Maryland thrive, in this crisis and beyond it.

Join this webinar where working groups share out briefs on topics identified and outcomes achieved. The goal is for groups to continue collaboration after the webinar series is complete.

Matt Scassero, Director of the UMD UAS Test Site, and Kevin Switick, CEO of AVIAN, will host the webinar from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (EDT). This series is organized by the smART Collaboration Working Group, with members representing government, industry, academia, and non-profit organizations.

Adapt. Respond. Thrive. The ART of Collaboration: Connecting and Contributing to Community in Crisis.
