Point Breeze Credit Union HOSTS HUNT VALLEY BUSINESS FORUM, WELCOMES NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
HUNT VALLEY, MD (2/7/19) – Point Breeze Credit Union welcomed Karen Cook, the new Executive Director of The Hunt Valley Business Forum, last evening, hosting the Forum’s Business Mash Up networking event at the credit union’s Hunt Valley headquarters and making a $5,000 donation toward the work being done by the Forum.
The Hunt Valley Business Forum is the premier business association in Northern Baltimore County, empowering the development and growth of business in Maryland.
“We were thrilled to have the opportunity to host HVBF’s new Executive Director, Karen Cook and the other business leaders of the Hunt Valley community, furthering the mission of the Hunt Valley Business Forum to connect, educate, and advocate for its members on important matters affecting the area’s business community,” says Bernard McLaughlin, President & CEO of Point Breeze.
“The vitality of the Hunt Valley business community, and that of the entire Baltimore region, is essential not only for Point Breeze, but for all of the other companies and nonprofits in the area to compete effectively, now and into the future,” McLaughlin continues.
McLaughlin notes that for more than 80 years, Point Breeze has made community involvement and support a key part of its mission. Point Breeze refers to this commitment to the community and its laser focus on putting members first by providing them with convenient, easy solutions that help them to save time and money as “the credit union difference.”
Point Breeze currently provides financial and volunteer support for a wide range of organizations throughout the Baltimore area, including Arts Every Day and Bridges – two initiatives aimed at helping students in Baltimore City – and the Carroll County Hospital’s new Neonatal Couplet Care Program.
