“I have been a member of the Baltimore County Chamber going on
10 years in October. I live in Baltimore County, so that is why I am a member — so I can find out about what's going on in my community. I have networked with many members to help each other out and find new business. I have met great members that have become friends. Sometimes, they may not be a customer, but it's who they may be working with or who they know. It takes time to network with members. You have to attend every meeting or networking event you can, so people will recognize your face. I also like to shop with the member businesses to use their products and services. It’s a social event.”
