Thank you all for coming to the Maryland Chamber of Commerce’s 50th anniversary party!

Last night, we reflected on the promise the Maryland Chamber made 50 years ago—to better serve the needs of a growing statewide constituency and provide a single advocate’s voice for business throughout the state. With the amazing crowd that came out to celebrate our anniversary, I am proud to say that we have upheld that promise.

Hosted at none other than Baltimore’s Museum of Industry, a building dedicated to the rich history of business throughout this state, we welcomed guests with the Ravens’ Pep Band, created hilarious memories with a digital graffiti wall, indulged in Maryland’s traditions–like crabcakes, local oysters, and tastings from Linganore Winecellars, Lyon Distilling, Sandy Bottom Cocktails, Boordy Vineyards, Patapsco Distilling, Twin Valley Distillers, Big Cork Vineyards, and Sagamore Distillery. If you missed our 50th anniversary celebration, you missed a sparkling night to remember—one that I will be proud to reflect on for years to come.

Thank you to the Museum of Industry, to our sponsors, and the Maryland business community for sharing the evening with us—we are proud to be your partners.
