Georgetown Business Association Welcomes New President, Veep
With the resignation of its president, Charles Camp, the Georgetown Business Association's board of directors voted in a new president and vice president July 15 and then gathered at Dog Tag Bakery for its monthly networking reception.
The new GBA president is Sonya Bernhardt, formerly its vice president. Bernhardt is the CEO of Georgetown Media Group, which publishes The Georgetowner Newspaper and The Downtowner Newspaper.
The GBA vice president is Hope Solomon, who works at the Overseas Private Investment Corporation and previously worked with the U.S. Senate Sergeant at Arms. Solomon also is involved with the family business on P Street, Wedding Creations & Anthony's Tuxedos.
"I wish Sonya and Hope and the GBA, of which I remain a corporate member, all the best in the future," former GBA president Charles Camp told The Georgetowner. Camp heads the Law Offices of Charles H. Camp, P.C., located on Thomas Jefferson Street, NW.
Meghan Ogilvie, chief operating officer of Dog Tag Bakery, which opened a little more than six months ago, thanked the GBA for its award of "New Business of the Year." Ogilvie spoke about the bakery's commitment to educate veterans on how to run a business besides learning how to bake and make soup and sandwiches. The program runs through Georgetown University's School of Continuing Education. The Dog Tag non-profit on Grace Street was co-founded by Rev. Rick Curry, S.J., and Connie Milstein, both Georgetowners.
