Michael Kelly – Building Connections Between Community Residents and Local Businesses (Marriot/Zoom)
Michael Kelly is a local writer and publisher of community magazines in neighborhoods around Montgomery County. Working with local businesses in Kensington in 2020, he launched Kensington Neighbors to help local businesses reach customers in their local market. It was such a success that he then launched North Bethesda Neighbors last summer. His goal is to bring people together and connect residents with businesses. He does that by sharing stories about local families, local businesses, artists, athletes, and all the things we love most about where we live. The publications give residents a new way to get to know more about each other and to share information on what’s going on in the community.
