Meet the State is the premier gathering of General Assembly leadership, state government agencies and Maryland’s business community at the beginning of session that will set the tone for our ability to advance Chamber legislative priorities for the upcoming session. This event is our opportunity to discuss and inform legislators on what we do as a business community to contribute to our economy and the communities in which we live.
The state of Maryland is proud to support the military community in a number of ways, from special tax benefits to education and tuition assistance. One way that the Maryland Chamber of Commerce is pleased to highlight the support of the military community is the veteran and military spouse hiring initiatives that so many members of the Chamber have developed over the years. With Veteran’s Day this week, and November recognized as Military Family Appreciation Month, we couldn’t think of a better time to highlight examples of companies who have created hiring initiatives to benefit the military community and, in turn, benefit their companies.
The Maryland Chamber of Commerce is proud to support businesses of all shapes and sizes. In the latest U.S. Census Bureau survey of small business owners, data revealed 2.52 million veteran-owned businesses in the U.S. These veteran-owned small businesses employ more than 5 million people in the U.S. and Maryland alone has over 50, 976 veteran-owned small businesses. This Veteran’s Day, we would like to recognize some examples of the veteran-owned small businesses that call Maryland home.
