Nothing enriches a persons life like service to others. Each year the Maryland CPCU Society Chapter reaches out to the local community to help in many different ways. For example, for the last 17 years the Chapter has collected toys at the Holiday Party for the students at Sharp-Leadenhall School in Baltimore. We have also participated in fund raisers and have helped stock the shelves at the Maryland Food Bank. Join your fellow professionals in reaching out to those who need a hand.
