 Baltimore, MD –Kicking off with a welcome by Congressman Elijah Cummings, the Green Energy Business Opportunity Conference [GEBOC] will convene on May 12 and 13 at the Baltimore Convention Center.  During the forum, small and traditionally disadvantaged business owners will be gaining an opportunity to understand, plan and harness the breaking wave of the new green energy economy.

His depth of insight will also draw on his roles leading the Competitive Telecommunications Association (CompTel) and the Maryland PSC.

 “Gaining useful insight into a very rapidly evolving and critically important new energy industry is the mission of this conference. Our opening panel of leaders will frame the issues and suggest opportunities for those with an eye on opportunity” said Stanley Tucker, Chairman of the President’s Round Table.
