The Daily Record’s annual list of Maryland’s Top 100 Women was created to recognize outstanding achievement by women who have demonstrated significant professional accomplishments, outstanding community leadership and inspiration mentoring.
Since 1996, The Daily Record has recognized more than 1,000 high-achieving women who are making an impact in Maryland. This year’s winners were honored at the Meyerhof Symphony Hall in Baltimore on May 6th.
“As Maryland’s Top 100 Women celebrates its 18th anniversary, all of us at The Daily Record continue to be proud and honored to present this important event that recognizes the many ways women contribute to a vibrant Maryland,” Daily Record Publisher Suzanne Fischer-Huettner said. “We commend all of our past winners and are proud to recognize our Top 100 Women of 2013.”
“We are proud to say that Mary Hastler has been named to the 2013 list of Maryland’s Top 100 Women,” stated Louise LeTendre, Harford County Public Library Board President. “Her commitment and dedication to the Library and the community is evidence of her leadership qualities. She continues to elevate the Library in Harford County to a new plateau by providing products and services that meet the needs and exceed the expectations of its customers. Congratulations Mary!”
This year, The Daily Record received more than 500 nominations solicited from economic development agencies, women’s organizations, chambers of commerce and the business community at large.
Nominees were asked to complete an application outlining their educational and career history, professional and community involvement, corporate and nonprofit board memberships and mentoring experience. They were encouraged to submit one letter of recommendation from someone who is familiar with their accomplishments professionally, in the community and through mentoring.
A panel of judges composed of business professionals and past Top 100 Women winners from throughout Maryland reviewed all of the applications, narrowing the list to select this year’s Top 100 Women. The process is comprehensive and includes multiple panels judging hundreds of worthy applicants to find the best Maryland has to offer. This year, 63 women are first-time recipients.
