About The Hunt Valley Business Forum

The HVBF is an outgrowth of the Greater Hunt Valley Transportation Management Association. The TMA was formed in 1990 to promote the extension of the light rail to the Hunt Valley Mall and to give land developers and retailers the focus to discuss transportation problems of growth centers. HVTMA`s goals in 1991 were:
1. Improve access to the Hunt Valley area through light rail and bus service
2. reduce traffic congestion and employee commuting costs
3. facilitate vehicle and pedestrian circulation within the area
4. improve environmental conditions--an adviser to the MD Dept of the environment
The HVBF was created in 1996, and expanded its resources to educational roundtables that addressed areas of concern--real estate development, light rail station stops development, feeder buses and overall security. Workplace issues such as human resources, facilities management, employee safety, and small business management were topics of discussion. These are still relevant concerns today but we now present roundable forums that address other subjects that affect the workplace, networking that allows business relationships to develop, meetings of our Women in Business Group, Advocacy issues and outreach to our community.

We respect and thank our businesses that have allowed us to continue to represent them as a successful business organization.
