1. Improve access to the Hunt Valley area through light rail and bus serviceThe 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.
