See What Some of Our Members Are Saying About Us!
"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."

"I think Potomac Edison probably falls into the category of being a Chamber member because we want (and need) a thriving and prosperous business community in which to operate."

"We are members because we look to the Chamber to promote business in Washington County. A strong business community, across all sectors, is imperative for our success. If the business community is weak, then there is little need for educational services and job training!
Also, I would say that membership is important to me because of your advocacy. I can’t take a stand on everything, nor can I be involved with everything. However, our membership in the Maryland State Chamber and Washington County Chamber gives us a seat at the table when issues arise. You go and work with city and county officials to make things happen and they are in our best interest too."
"After I joined the Chamber, within 3 months, by "leveraging" my member status in my sales presentation, I increased my gross revenue by 30%."

"Fiserv is a member of the chamber because Fiserv has proudly served millions of small businesses with technology and payment solutions for more than 30 years, and we are committed to helping this critical segment of our economy. Our membership with the Washington Chamber of Commerce enables us to connect with local small businesses who are committed to their communities and seeking new ideas and technologies to further their ongoing success."
"Leadership Washington County continues to be a Washington County Chamber of Commerce member for several reasons. LWC aims to be a good community partner and our Chamber is a key organization supporting business of all sizes, and the Chamber keeps me up to date about significant business-related bills introduced, discussed and passed/killed during Maryland's legislative session. LWC believes the Chamber has strong CEO/President that actively supports and celebrates businesses in Washington County, stays connected to Annapolis and the Washington County Delegation members, and also strives to be a good community partner with like-minded organizations (ie, LWC, GHC)."

"Our company has been a member of the Chamber for 73 years. We feel it’s important to continue to be a member…and we feel that any serious and successful business would feel the same. For me personally, I like to be engaged in the chamber because it helps me stay informed and connected."

"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."

"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."
