Maryland 2030 will guide the development of cross-collaborative strategies to ensure Maryland is at the forefront of global competitiveness and economic prosperity, attracting and retaining quality jobs, and developing vibrant, sustainable communities. This project is a three-year research effort designed to stimulate strategic thinking, identify key trends, and engage business and community leaders in each of Maryland’s 23 counties and Baltimore City.
As Maryland is poised to add 500,000 people to its population by 2030, we are asking business leaders, community stakeholders and elected officials:
Are we ready?
Do we have enough quality private sector jobs to ensure our residents are employed?
How can we better prepare the talent pipeline for tomorrow?
Are we reducing the skills gap in the state?
Are we attracting the capital and innovation that will allow us to stay globally competitive?
Do we have a business climate that produces growth and economic expansion?
When I first joined the Chamber, it was for the networking opportunities. Not only has membership opened doors to new business, it's exposed me to issues facing Maryland businesses and expanded my knowledge of the market."

As a woman-owned Maryland business, we find that Maryland Chamber membership is a meaningful way to have our voice heard on issues and policies that help move Maryland forward. I can think of no other organization that provides that opportunity like Maryland Chamber."

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."
