History:
Integrate Baltimore, originally the unofficial "AV Club" of Baltimore, began as an outlet for industry professionals to network and give back through charitable causes. In 2013, the first AV Club meeting commenced and since then has steadily grown a following of professionals who care about their industry and their community.
 
In 2015, the AV Club officially became Integrate Baltimore to be more inclusive of other technology sectors, not just Pro-AV. 
 
n 2017, Integrate Baltimore successfully completed the process of becoming a certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to expand it's reach. We then began focusing deeper on the some important challenges regarding technology surplus, accessibility, and workforce development.
