Message from the Chairman

Dear Fellow Chamber Members:

The Chamber is committed to enhancing the business climate in Calvert County. Our organization is led by a dedicated board of business and community leaders, working together to make the Calvert County Chamber the influential voice of business, creating economic vitality by promoting the business community and its members.  I am honored to represent the Calvert County Chamber of Commerce as Chair of the Board of Directors in 2016.

2015 was a positive year for the Chamber. We welcomed Bill Chambers as our President and CEO, engaged our membership through training and educational opportunities, and provided more support to subsets of our membership through Chamber Committees including Ambassadors, Government Affairs, Women2Women, LeadShare and our newly formed Non-Profit Alliance. The Chamber staff made great strides in new membership and member retention.

As we move forward in 2016, the efforts of your Chamber’s Board and staff will continue to support several areas of focus including education, advocacy and connection. We will continue to provide opportunities for members to learn more about topics and issues which affect their businesses.  We are committed to advocating for legislature that will benefit the business community and will strive to bring together community leaders to create solutions for issues impacting businesses. Additionally, we will provide opportunities for our members to make valuable connections which can help their businesses continue to grow and prosper.

I encourage you to find out more about the valuable benefits chamber membership can offer your business and to discover ways to get involved. After all, we can be much stronger when we work together toward common goals! Your continued support of the Calvert County Chamber of Commerce is greatly appreciated.
