Thrive! Arundel is an industry exclusive business referral group.  The group strikes a balance with the time commitment required to support the group's efforts (meetings every OTHER week) coupled with the structure needed to foster genuine business development efforts. Industry exclusivity provides members the opportunity to serve as the expert in their field, for our community.

The focus of the group is to connect business development professionals who are driven to build their own business while helping their peers build their business as well.  

Most members of this group live or work in the Anne Arundel County area and/or are responsible for developing business in this market. With this geographic focus, the professional and philanthropic efforts of the group overflow to their friends and neighbors creating a uniquely strong sense of "community." 

The group meets every other Thursday at 7:30 am near Riva Road in Annapolis.  If you would like to attend a meeting, as a guest, or for more information, please contact us.  Provided you are in a non-competing category, we'd love to have you join us at our next meeting!
