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.
Here are a few of the members who understand that, together, we build stronger connections, stronger solutions and stronger policies for Maryland.
The Maryland Chamber of Commerce is a powerful network of industry leaders with a proven track record of success advocating for business. No other organization provides the opportunity to guide and shape policy along with a multitude of valuable resources and engaging events for Maryland business leaders."

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."

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
