Welcome to The Laurel Board of Trade
Bringing Laurel Businesses Together
The Laurel Board of Trade, Inc. is a local non-profit membership organization that has been bringing together Laurel merchants since the early 1960s.
The Laurel Board of Trade today includes over 100 small business members including retail merchants, restaurant owners and professional and B2B service providers. We work in direct partnership with the City of Laurel, Prince George’s County and the State of Maryland to help our local merchants work towards the common goal of keeping Laurel a hub of commerce.
Over the years, our basic mission has not changed; to help members be their best through connections to knowledge, ideas, relationships with other small businesses in the area and educating the community on the importance of buying local and supporting your local small businesses.
Carla Conway is the creative director/owner of Uncommon Design. She founded her studio over 20 years ago and continues to take great pride in the creative process and the relationships she builds with her clients.
Inspired by the belief that “image is everything,” her design philosophy is to make the idea clear and simple, the design surprising and beautiful. She strives to be unique, to push the envelope, and create eye-catching graphics that will make you or your business stand out from the crowd.
Carla has aspired to make Uncommon Design a company that clients enjoy working with. Small and flexible, yet experienced – she works closely with her clients throughout the design process. She has a diverse selection of customers, from small start-ups and churches to larger associations, non-profit organizations, entrepreneurs, and various government agencies.
Carla is passionate about good design, and nothing gives her greater pleasure than to nail the client’s brief. She loves a good creative design challenge so call her today and let her make your project a reality!
When she’ not designing or googling things, she enjoys spending time with family and close friends. She also enjoys cooking, gardening, going to concerts, traveling and she also love hummingbirds!
