The Maryland Chamber is Maryland’s largest statewide business advocacy organization. We are committed to working with our statewide alliance of partners on critical public policy issues. With a focus on economic development and grassroots advocacy, we impact policies that directly affect Maryland business. Business makes Maryland better. Let’s make Maryland better for business.
The mission of the Maryland Chamber of Commerce is to advance inclusive partnerships for a Maryland where all businesses and their communities thrive.
The Maryland Chamber’s strategy for the next three years builds on what is already working well for us, and introduces bold ambitions designed to reflect our commitment to making Maryland work better. When our economy is thriving, our communities thrive, and that is our vision moving forward.
At the Maryland Chamber of Commerce, our mission is to advance inclusive partnerships for a Maryland where all businesses and their communities thrive. We believe that no matter the industry, diversity, equity and inclusion are business imperatives. Greater diversity benefits Maryland’s economy, businesses, communities and employees.
To engage more fully in the complex challenges surrounding equity, we are prepared to listen, learn and take proactive steps toward meaningful change in the workplace and in our communities. We will continue to facilitate conversations among business and innovation leaders in the DEI space so that together we can make Maryland more inclusive for all.
Here are a few of the members who understand that, together, we build stronger connections, stronger solutions and stronger policies for Maryland.
Maryland’s businesses need a strong voice in Annapolis to help the state compete regionally, nationally and globally. The Maryland Chamber is that voice, and they bring businesses and policymakers together to achieve that goal."
Denis Dunn, State President–Maryland, Washington D.C., and Delaware, AT&T
The MD Chamber is the leading voice representing businesses across our state. Their expertise, guidance and leadership on legislative issues is priceless. In 2020, the Chamber established the Data Center Coalition to support legislation providing sales & use tax exemption for data centers. It passed, and now Maryland is a competitor in this market."
Jamie Williams, Director, Economic & Tourism Development, Kent County Economic Development
The Labor & Employment Committee has had a direct and significant impact on the workplace laws in Maryland. We have successfully proposed legislation to revise certain laws, suggested revisions to pending bills and fought problematic bills - all to protect the legitimate and practical interests of employers, while balancing the needs of employees."
Fiona Ong, Partner, Shawe Rosenthal LLP
