During the 2023 Session, we worked with the National Alliance on Mental Illness in Maryland (NAMI – MD), to deploy Advocacy Action Alerts, which enabled constituents to contact their legislators on key issues being considered before the General Assembly. We developed messaging and integrated an advocacy outreach system through five targeted campaigns.
The result: Over 2,900 emails were sent to Maryland General Assembly Members urging support of critical legislation that would impact mental health in the state.
For the second year, Compass PR coordinated branding and media relations for the Minority Business (MBE) Night in Annapolis. This year’s event attracted over 700 businesses from throughout the state and featured top state officials including special guest Governor Wes Moore. We developed the website, print and digital signage, program collateral, and facilitated media coverage.

Our Compass PR team led the branding and marketing efforts for the 2022 MBE Night. Over 400 minority businesses joined in Annapolis on Thursday, April 28 for an evening centered around opportunities in procurement and capital.
The event featured a host of state legislators, state agency officials, panel discussions, and a presentation from the U.S. Small Business Administration. It was an honor to work on this event from start to finish.
Throughout the process, we established a brand identity, designed all marketing collateral, and developed an all-inclusive website (www.mbeannapolis.com), allowing attendees to register, access key event information, and view media from previous MBE Nights.
