"The Central Maryland Chamber has connected myself & my business with a number of new contacts and business resources to help grow my business. Being a part of the chamber has given me insight into business and business relationship aspects I have not thought about before becoming a member of the chamber.

Additionally, becoming a part of two chamber committees, the Small Business Council, and the CEO RoundTable, have been a part of the expansion of my business by connecting me with new clients and business resources. These committees have allowed me to network and consult with other business owners to help navigate issues I am just starting to experience and the guidance to get through these issues. It has helped me with bouncing new ideas off other business owners as well to get independent feedback to ideas and issues as well." Bill DiGregory
