MORE FROM OUR ANNAPOLIS EVENT
Arthur Chu, David Gephardt, and Dave Sciamarelli at the Westin Annapolis on Dec. 15, 2011
At last week's Bisnow Annapolis event, we snapped Global Network Services? Arthur Chu, HITT Contracting?s David Gebhardt, and MacKenzie Commercial's Dave Sciamarelli. The Davids arecollege buddies from Salisbury University, and the run-in at our event prompted a discussion about a potential future project. (Hey, LinkedIn, you're not the only one bringing people together. Where's our IPO?) Not to be outdone, Arthur is starting a social media program, GNS Genius Chats, to deliver relocation expertise from brokers, property managers, and service providers to small businesses that want to move or expand. Seemingly inspired byBisnow, he wants to dole it out in bite-size, entertaining chunks. Check out the "geniuschats" channel on YouTube for the first program this week.
Kelly Cantley and George Kreis at the Westin Annapolis on Dec. 15, 2011
And here's Bozzuto Construction's brand-new biz dev director Kelly Cantley. She's still chummy with her old coworkers at Turner Construction, though, including George Kreis.
Bryan Miller and Hubert Braithwaite at the Westin Annapolis on Dec. 15, 2011
We also snapped Atantec Enterprise Solutions CEO Bryan Millerand Tower Federal Credit Union?s Hubert Braithwaite, who tells us his credit union is among those that has experienced a jump in membership as people became frustrated with the bigger banks.
Westin Annapolis on Dec. 15, 2011
Our take on the guestbook: a gingerbread house and tubes of frosting to play with. We're looking to repurpose this as an MOB. Anyone know a good broker?

Mike Pachler, Sanja Giandomenico, Matt Jones, and Lara Fritts in summer 2011
Snapped during warmer months: Mike Pachler, Sanja Giandomenico, Matt Jones, and CEO Lara Fritts of our sponsorAnnapolis Economic Development Corp. Check out chair Midgett Parker's spirited opening remarks at our event here. Mike tells us AEDC is teaming with the Annapolis School of Seamanship to offer advanced recreational (a made-in-the-USA oxymoron) marine classes to execs to "lure" them and their businesses to Annapolis. And the AEDC land-use committee is helping draft legislation to make developing in Annapolis simpler. Another event sponsor, theChesapeake Regional Tech Council, helps its more than 250 member companies make connections and develop technologies throughout the Baltimore/Annapolis/Washington region.
