Sponsors Needed for Spirit of Community Awards
Planning is now underway for the Central Maryland Chamber’s annual  Spirit of Community Awards Gala   , which will be held at Live! Event Center at Live! Casino & Hotel on Monday, March 30, 2020. As in past years, this year’s dinner will recognize public safety officers and educators who serve our region, as well as a military service member of the year from Fort Meade.

This is a truly feel-good evening, and past recipients have told us how much they enjoyed the caliber of the event and the recognition from the business community.    But we can’t do it without you   –  this event is only possible through your support   !     

We are only able to host this important community event strictly through sponsorship from the business community.

We encourage you to review the options below and find an appropriate level at which your business can participate. Sponsorships at the Silver, Gold, and Platinum level include advertising in the Program Book, while Table Hosts are recognized with table signage and the opportunity to sit with the nominees (specific requests accommodated on a first come, first served basis, with preference given to returning hosts).

Not able to sponsor or advertise? We still encourage you to attend – we feel certain once you’ve attended once you’ll never want to miss it! You can click  HERE to truly get an appreciation of last year's remarkable event with nearly 300 attendees. We hope you can be a special part of these important festivities this year!

Inclement Weather Policy
Because the Central Maryland Chamber serves members in several counties, the following inclement weather policy has been established:

If any one of the three county school systems (Anne Arundel, Howard, Prince George’s) closes due to inclement weather, all chamber activities for the day will be cancelled.

If any one of the three county school systems has a 2 hour delay, all chamber activities prior to noon will be cancelled.  

If any one of the three county school systems closes early due to weather, all chamber evening activities will be cancelled.
