Serving more than our clients.
In Latin, the word used to describe a feeling of great social equality, solidarity or togetherness was “communitas.” Over time it has evolved into the word we know as “community.” The success of any great business is dependent on the vitality of its surrounding community. Which is why Meridian is proud to be an active member of the local metropolitan areas it serves.
Whether fundraising for causes we hold near and dear, or sponsoring local events, our associates are continually offering up their support. We hope you’ll be inspired by the strides we take to better our communities. And we encourage you to join us in our mission to make a difference.
