Chamber of Commerce to publish 4th issue of `Newcomers Guide'

The Howard County Chamber of Commerce will publish the fourth issue of its quarterly relocation magazine, The Newcomers Guide to Howard County, designed to provide a snapshot of the county for new residents. The issue is expected to be published Nov. 1.

Six thousand copies will be distributed to new residents from service lists - to those who request information by phone or from the chamber's Web site - at the Howard County Tourism Visitors Center, at local real estate offices and by sales associates.

Human resource managers of top firms will receive copies for employee relocation packages, as will Howard County public schools and police for recruitment packages.
