Welcome Summer!

It’s been a busy past few months at the Central Maryland Chamber of Commerce. Most importantly, we welcomed our new Director of Membership, Monica Lee. Monica comes to the Chamber with an extensive background in membership sales, service, and retention, and has already hit the ground running. Her experience, positive attitude, and passion for supporting businesses and nonprofit organizations made her the perfect fit for the job! Please reach out to her if you’re interested in membership, if would like to review your benefits, or just to say hello! Monica’s email is [email protected]

In June, we had a successful golf tournament at Turf Valley Resort in Ellicott City. Thanks to our Central Maryland Classic planning committee, our sponsors and donors, the Chamber’s board of directors, talented staff, and all the golfers, volunteers, and donors who made this event a success. 

We also hosted several other networking and educational events to keep our members engaged and had the first meeting of our new Government Contractors Roundtable in June. We look forward to growing the group and supporting our member contractors. 

Looking ahead, on July 13th, we’re having a morning networking event at the newly renovated National Cryptologic Museum. We’ll have a tour, a briefing from NSA, and of course plenty of coffee and networking. Then on July 19 we’ll be hosting a seminar — Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events, followed by a session on Aug. 23 on Emergency Preparedness for Small Businesses. 

We’re also hosting the largest multi-chamber networking event of the year on Aug. 16 at the Maritime Conference Center in Linthicum. This is a speed networking event where you’ll make valuable connections, enjoy a delicious breakfast, and you may even win a door prize. We hope you can join us! Registration for all upcoming events can be found at www.centralmarylandchamber.org
