"Working in this area, but not being from this area can be challenging. The Chamber has been nothing less than gracious, extremely helpful and a tremendous resource for me. Their partnership is greatly appreciated."

"After I joined the Chamber, within 3 months, by "leveraging" my member status in my sales presentation, I increased my gross revenue by 30%."

“Bella Salon and Spa has been a member of the Chamber for many years.  We have found it to be beneficial in many ways.  One way is the member benefits.  This is a great source with fellow business member information and discounts as well as an outlet for our own promotions and/or services. Monthly mixers are a great way to meet your follow business members face to face in a fun setting.  We have had a mixer at our salon & spa and it was a great way for us to introduce ourselves to the business community.  The reach of the chamber’s network of resources for business owners has proven to be a powerful tool.”

"Ever Since I started representing my business in the Hagerstown, Washington Co. Chamber of Commerce in early Fall 2012, I have made some great contacts in the local business community. I find that being an active member of the Chamber including attending 2-3 events minimum per month, I have gained some additional knowledge about businesses who participate in and respond to other members through networking offered by the Chamber. By making those initial contacts and working on building relationships with members, I have found it easier to do business with those members. I believe that becoming a member of the Chamber's New Member Ambassador program is the best decision I could have made this year. I really enjoy the responsibility of meeting new members and inviting them to events as well as introducing them to current members who are able to help build their business. In summary, it is a great feeling to get recognized at events by members who once started as strangers but now have become friends. I look forward to all my work and efforts conversing with the Chamber and its members in the years to come."

"I love the Chamber because of its leadership role in keeping the business community informed about area issues and institutions. The Eggs and Issues breakfasts are well planned, with topics and speakers always relevant and timely."

"I'm loving the Chamber because of the many opportunities it provides on a monthly basis to connect and network with other businesses and leaders throughout Washington County. From Eggs and Issues and the Savvy Managers Book Club to Morning Mixers, Learning Lunches and Business After Hours ~ there's something for anyone interested in connecting, supporting and thriving as a business in our community.

I'm glad to be part of an exciting Chamber as I grow my business."
