Participants will participate in a “windshield tour” and overview of Fort George G. Meade; home to 119 organizations including U.S. Cyber Command and NSA. Every branch of the military is represented on this installation. Focus points will be on growth, projects and issues that not only impact Fort Meade, but Howard County as well. Fort Meade is the largest employer in the state with a large percentage of employees who call Howard County home. In addition, participants will also get a glimpse of what it’s like to live on an installation as we tour through our housing areas and see a few of our seven public schools on the installation. Following the bus tour, the group will enjoy lunch (at a nominal cost) with our service members and with garrison leadership for an opportunity to have an open conversation with our garrison commander and ask questions.
