The chapter arranged for many one-of-a-kind experiences significant to the region for conference-goers to enjoy. The special events included a Maryland crab feast at Nick’s Fish House with a reggae band, and a spectacular welcome reception at Baltimore’s National Aquarium. A pre-game party and baseball game at the Orioles park at Camden Yards was enjoyed by a large group.
