Recap of Coffee with the President

It was a rainy morning, but that didn't stop more nearlry two-dozen of our dedicated members from making it to BB&T Bank's new location on Little Patuxent Parkway for some coffee and great conversation with Chamber President, Leonardo McClarty and Director of Membership Ronny Nadiv. We love these quarterly chances to connect with members in a casual setting for one-on-one conversations to learn more about them, their businesses and what the Chamber can do for them.
