Mission & Purpose


We believe the bonds of our heritage brings us together to be a part of something bigger than ourselves as individuals for the common cause of promoting Italian culture and raising money for other 501c3 organizations in Maryland. Our charitable giving focuses on the areas of education, family and child services, mental health, and addiction. Our reach has grown since 2013, and we believe we can touch countless more people with our increased charity work. YOU can become an important part of the mission we started!

Yesterday was All Saints’ Day where we celebrated the lives of those who are viewed as amazing enough by the church to be canonized.

Today we celebrate all of those who left us this year with this prayer.

"Merciful Father, hear our prayer and console us. As we renew our faith in Your son, whom you raised from the dead, strengthen our hope that all our departed brothers and sisters will share in His resurrection, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let Your perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace.

Amen"

I have never experience such a sensitive target in my whole life until I met with Mrs. KRISTINA SCOTT who is a skillful Bitcoin trader and has being handling my trade with his signal over a year now. With minimum $1000 you are sure to hit $10,050 all within a week. Thanks for your good work and God bless you. Contact her via: WhatsApp: +1 (360) 504-6439 Email: [email protected]

All Saints’ Day is celebrated on November 1. In the Catholic faith and other Western Christian religions All Saints’ Day is to show honor and reverence to saints both canonized and unknown.

"Around the world, there are many traditions woven into All Saints’ Day, from the laying of flowers on graves on November 1 to the Mexican Day of the Dead — which honors children who have passed on, on the holiday’s first day — not to mention Halloween in the U.S. and Canada, a celebration that originally was in large part linked to All Saints’ Day."

So in honor of those who have come before us and led us on the honorable path, thank you and here is our prayer to you. "Dear God, thank you for the example of the Saints. I desire to join in their company, worshiping you forever in Heaven. Please help me follow their footsteps, and yours, Jesus Christ. Please help me to conform myself to Your image, seeking Your will in all things, as the Saints did. Please help me to devote myself, and all that I do, to Your glory, and to the service of my neighbors. Amen."

"It seems the original breadsticks, known as grissini, originated in the Piedmont region of Italy in the late 1600s, though food historians don’t all agree on the origins of this treat."

As an Italian American organization, we are definitely going to lay claim to this tasty treat.

Next year at the #mif2023 you can be sure that there will definitely be breadsticks there! 🙂

#ThrowbackThursday  As we roll into the cooler days of autumn how we miss the fun outdoor events of the summer months.

All of the best foods, drinks, games, and activities to keep you and the whole family coming back for more.

Like the picture says, Italian American heritage isn’t just about the tasty food.

We are always looking for men and women who want to embrace their Italian American heritage to join our ranks. If this interests you keep reading…

While it is common for members to foster personal relationships over time within the group which may eventually lead to business opportunities or other activities, the Society of Italian American Businessmen is NOT a business networking group.

As noted in the Mission Statement, the organization was established for local businessmen who maintain the means and resources to promote the Italian heritage in Cecil, Harford, and Baltimore Counties. Plus we were founded to conduct fundraising activities and provide other support throughout the year to local non-profits. SIAB is an all-volunteer organization.

Members routinely volunteer their time to help local non-profits with varying needs, and to assist in efforts to raise money for charities and the SIAB scholarship fund. Members are therefore expected to buy and/or sell tickets to SIAB’s events and/or raffles. You are expected to assist with organizing and/or conducting events, solicit sponsorships from local businesses, and participate in outreach initiatives including promoting the Society of Italian American Businessmen in local parades or other community events.

So if you are still interested in joining our ranks, understand you must attend a least one meeting as a guest of a current member. As an active member of SIAB, you are expected to attend a minimum of nine (9) General Membership Meetings per calendar year and actively participate in one or more committees. General Membership Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month at a local restaurant in Harford County. Members are responsible for the cost of their dinner which is approximately $50 per meeting.

Please thoroughly consider the expectations and commitments required of our members as you make your decision to apply for membership in the Society of Italian American Businessmen.
