BALTIMORE, MD, February 3rd, 2016 – Corporate comedian and ventriloquist Tom Crowl has been chosen to emcee the Maryland Quality Initiative (MdQI) Annual Banquet and Awards of Excellence dinner at the Baltimore Convention Center on Thursday, Feb. 4th.
MdQI is a statewide initiative created by Maryland's transportation industry to improve the design and maintenance of the transportation system as a whole. The banquet is part of an annual two-day informational and technical conference aimed to enhance professional and leadership skills for experts in the transportation industry in Maryland.
Corporate comedian and ventriloquist Tom Crowl was chosen to emcee the event to keep the audience energized and engaged and ensure the program is run smoothly. To make this year's banquet the most unique and memorable to date, the final awards will be presented by puppet doppelganger versions of two MdQI board members. Crowl is highly recognized for this signature sketch where he turns audience members into human puppets. The awards to be presented in this hilarious sketch comedy are the:
Modal/Municipal Awards – Projects under $5 Million (MDOT Modes, Baltimore City and CEAM)
Modal/Municipal Awards – Projects over $5 Million (MDOT Modes, Baltimore City and CEAM)
Crowl will also be animating MdQI member's pictures to create virtual ventriloquist puppets.
The first MdQI conference unfolded in 1994 and was dubbed the “Road to Quality.” In 2008, it shifted to recognize projects completed within a fiscal year instead of a calendar year. To be eligible for an Award of Excellence, projects must have a completion or acceptance date between October 1st and September 30th of the next calendar year.
