Maryland Legislative Review

IPS' Director of the Genuine Progress Project, Daphne Wysham will be among a host of speakers to share important information about the upcoming legislative session.

MD flagGovernor O' Malley and our representatives in the General Assembly will be gathering in Annapolis in January to deal with serious state budget problems and address statewide policy needs in an election year. The 2014 legislature must also be ready to react to dramatic and far-reaching events in Washington.  Together, the decisions made in the state and national capitals this year will affect every nonprofit organization in the state, and all of our members, clients and stakeholders. Maryland Nonprofits will bring together public officials, legislative experts, and advocacy leaders to bring you important information about the upcoming legislative session and how it will affect the nonprofit sector.

  • Senator Richard S. Madaleno
  • Delegate Joseline A. Pena-Melnyk
