Community Involvement

Steve believes that it is important to serve not only clients, but the community as well. This philosophy was reflected in Steve’s popular “Carroll County Buzz” radio show which, for its six year run, highlighted as guests members of the community who sought to make a difference. The show also entertainingly informed listeners of steps they could take to improve their financial lives and protect themselves and their families from the uncontrollable.

In his efforts to serve the community, Steve has also provided invaluable leadership to a number of community-based organizations, including among others over the years:

  • Carroll County Chamber of Commerce: Steve, Chairman of the Board
  • NAIFA Maryland: Steve, two terms as president
