The Maryland General Assembly will convene for its 445th session on January 11, 2023. Every session presents an opportunity to educate lawmakers on the priorities of the business community and to share how businesses are driving the economy, advancing economic success and creating Maryland jobs. It also affords us the opportunity to raise the challenges being faced by employers and to work collaboratively toward solutions that make Maryland the best place to live, work and own a business.

The Maryland Chamber of Commerce’s Meet the State is the premier, early-session gathering of legislative and state government leaders. This event is our opportunity to discuss and inform legislators on what we do as a business community on behalf of our economy and the communities in which we live as well as weigh in on proposed legislation.


Meet the State is a full-day, immersive experience where attendees can expect to:

  • Hear from and speak directly to General Assembly leadership
  • Interact with leaders from state agencies
  • Receive a briefing on our legislative priorities and our plans to address them
  • Ask questions directly to your local legislators
  • Network with legislators and members of the business community throughout the day
  • Enjoy an evening reception at an one of Annapolis’ favorite bars with legislators
