Dear Fellow Chamber
Members and Friends,

First and foremost, thank you for your continued involvement and contributions to the positive environment and progress we’ve experienced within our Howard County Chamber community.

Over the past several years, it has been exhilarating to experience and be a part of the growth within our Howard County business community, as well as the Howard County community overall. As our county continues to evolve and earn acclaim as a regionally-preferred location for technology, health care, service, government contractors and other growth-minded organizations, it is exciting to feel the positive energy and observe the growth and development that surrounds us.

This is a particularly active time of year for the Chamber as we focus on reinvigorating an array of initiatives that support the execution of our Strategic Plan. These include the critical role the Chamber plays related to keeping our business community connected and informed and acting as the voice of business, advocating for a positive and productive local business climate.

During this time of year, we take some time to reflect upon and reiterate our appreciation for those who have dutifully served on our board and committees, particularly those who are at the completion of their respective terms — our Chamber and community have remarkably positive momentum, and we are eternally grateful for their contributions.

We also will have the distinct honor of announcing the appointments of our newest Chamber board members and committee participants — those whom we will count on to continue to contribute new energy and the incredible value that results from diverse perspectives.
There has never been a more exciting time to be involved in our Chamber community. I invite you to share my enthusiasm in anticipation of the continual refreshment of our programmatic offerings and the value our members will experience as a result of the collaborative efforts of our Chamber staff, members, committees, sponsors and board.

Thank you for your support and camaraderie. We look forward to continued prosperity together as a community.
