The Baltimore/Washington Corridor Chamber of Commerce will hold an Energy Cooperative information session from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow at the chamber's offices. 312 Marshall Ave., Suite 104, Laurel.

The cooperative is available to any entity -- businesses, nonprofit organizations, private schools, churches and synagogues -- that has a commercial electric or natural gas account.

Admission is free.

"TIPS: Techniques & Ideas for Professional Salespeople," a monthly motivational meeting for salespeople and business owners, will discuss "Fill Your Sales Funnel" from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Sept. 13 at chamber offices.

Admission is free to members; $20 for nonmembers.

Information: 301-725-4000.


Health care plan -- The Baltimore/Washington Corridor Chamber of Commerce and the Maryland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce are offering a limited health care plan to members. The plan, which does not require employer contributions or minimum employee participation, includes access to health care providers in Alliance PPO, a Mamsi/UnitedHealth company. Literature about the plan is available in Spanish. Shirley Redd, 301-725-4000.

Energy -- The Columbia-based Restaurant Association of Maryland is holding open enrollment for the Mid-Atlantic Aggregation Group Independent Consortium, an energy group of retailers and others, of which the association is a member. The consortium's goal is to offer power to commercial participants at a fixed rate that is lower than that of the local utility. The program offers long-term fixed pricing for up to five years, a price-reduction clause should energy rates decrease, the right to assign the contract should a business be sold, no historical-bandwidth usage requirement (the price is fixed) and elimination of additional charges in high-demand summer months. Paula Kreuzburg or Joe Gabriel, 800-874-1313.
