Chamber announces its development plan

The Howard County Chamber of Commerce has announced its new Chamber Development Plan. Called "Taking It To the Streets," the effort involves teams of chamber members, current and former board members and Catherine Dewey, the chamber's director of marketing and membership development.

The chamber board has approved new individual membership rates, available to home-based businesses, sole-proprietorships, sales representatives whose territories include Howard County, retired business professionals and others. For-profit businesses will pay $175 per year; small nonprofits will pay $100.

Fees for chamber membership are based on a tier system in which large-scale businesses pay more.

Information: Catherine Dewey, 410-730-4111, Ext. 106.
