Build New Relationships
Do you have an hour to spend on building strategic relationships that could lead to new business and referrals, and make a positive impact on the community? Central Maryland Chamber (CMC) members report that one of the best ways to get engaged and build strong relationships is by joining a committee.
The CMC has several committees that members can choose from. They include ambassadors, economic development, legislative, military affairs, small business and Women Mean Business committees. To learn more or to attend an upcoming meeting, call 410-672-3422.

Business Connections Network
On Nov. 1, the CMC launched the Business Connections Network, a premier networking group focused on connecting business professionals, sharing leads and building strategic relationships throughout Central Maryland. The group meets on the first Wednesday of each month, 8–9:30 a.m. This is a new (and free) benefit for members.
Non-members are welcome to attend one meeting as a guest, but must join the CMC to continue with the group. There is an exclusivity rule of one member per business category. To learn more, contact Nancy LaJoice at nancy@centralmarylandchamber.org or 410-672-3422, ext. 4.
