Four members of the Maryland Chamber of Commerce have become partners with the Maryland Chamber Federation, officials said Wednesday.
Joining the group are:
- Maryland Tech Council, the largest technology and life sciences trade association in Maryland
- Cybersecurity Association of Maryland Inc. (CAMI), a trade association comprising hundreds of cybersecurity providers, businesses and organizations that offer support and resources to Maryland’s cybersecurity industry
- Greater Crofton Chamber of Commerce, which serves Crofton, Gambrills, Davidsonville, Millersville and Bowie
- Pikesville Owings Mills Regional Chamber of Commerce, which serves Pikesville, Owings Mills and the surrounding areas
The federation was established a year ago to ensure the needs and concerns of small businesses are elevated to the state and federal levels of government. Participation in the federation gives partners and their own members increased influence in the state legislature and access to timely information, opportunities and resources.
Through the federation, any business with 10 or fewer full-time employees, which is already a member of a participating local chamber or trade association, will receive free federation membership into the Maryland Chamber of Commerce.
