Growth management conference postponed

The Maryland Conference on Growth Management scheduled for Oct. 1 has been postponed due to a scheduling conflict between the office of Gov. Parris N. Glendening and the Home Builders Association of Maryland.

According to Katie Flemming, director of communications for HBAM, Glendening was scheduled to give the keynote address at the conference, to be held at the Inn and Conference Center at the University of Maryland, College Park. However, Flemming said a conflict arose and the governor canceled.

Flemming said the conference would be rescheduled in the spring after the 1998 General Assembly session.
