Thrive! Arundel

Thrive! Arundel is comprised of business professionals who live and work in the Anne Arundel County area.  These professionals understand the value of a referral group focused on developing a strong network of strategic business partners with whom they can exchange referrals.

While business networking is our primary goal, the group also recognizes the value of personal and professional development.  So, at each meeting an educational topic is provided for open discussion on a thought provoking topic.  In addition, workshops are offered on a variety of business related topics.

Most members of the group live or work in the areas in which they are responsible for developing business.  With this geographic focus, the professional and philanthropic efforts of the group overflow to their friends and neighbors creating a uniquely strong sense of "community." 

Each quarter, the group gives back to the local community by donating time and  resources to support worthy causes.  Past recipient organizations include:

  • The Wellness House of Annapolis
  • The LightHouse Homeless Prevention Shelter
  • Fish 4 A Cure - AAMC DeCesaris Cancer Center
  • The Red Devils
  • The Anne Arundel SPCA
  • The Annapolis Film Festival
  • The NOCC Central MD Chapter & More!

We are proud to give back to the communities in which we live and work!  Join us!
