A Message from the Chairman
The Pikesville, Owings Mills, Reisterstown & Northwest Baltimore community has a thriving and broad business community.I have enjoyed working and living in the Pikesville, Owings Mills, Reisterstown & Northwest Baltimore area for the past 21 years. My tenure as a member of the Greater Baltimore Chamber of Commerce has been an invaluable experience. The Greater Baltimore Chamber continues to be a strong advocate for the business community. During these unique times, I encourage everyone to support our local businesses as much as possible. Our community needs to support local businesses so that these businesses survive beyond the pandemic. Please join me in shopping local as much as possible.
As the Chairman of the Greater Baltimore Chamber of Commerce, I am looking forward to working with the Chamber’s Board of Directors and our membership to promote our area’s business community.
We hope to return to in-person events as soon as possible, but we will continue to utilize virtual events in the interim. I encourage you to participate in the Chamber’s events, including our virtual networking opportunities and educational sessions. We will continue to strive to offer our members access to relevant topical business strategies and insight on the impact of the political process on the business community.
I hope that you are able to work with and benefit from the Pikesville, Owings Mills, Reisterstown & Northwest Baltimore business community. Please support our Farmers Market on Tuesdays, May through November. Your purchases at the Farmers Market support Maryland farmers and local artisans. The Chamber’s online directory offers a complete list of our member businesses. Please use this directory to support our local economy.

"Being an active member of the Chamber is such a meaningful & rewarding experience. The number of resources, networking opportunities, and connections throughout the county that come with being a member has made my time here well spent. Along with the Chamber’s resources, I’ve also received an enormous amount of support during the pandemic and with my business that I would not have received without my membership."

"The Greater Baltimore Chamber of Commerce has given me a greater appreciation for entrepreneurship and insight into running a small business. The networking opportunities are priceless. I’ve had the privilege to meet so many like-minded business owners who are passionate about their craft. I’ve been a member since 2018 and have witnessed the chamber go through so many obstacles and changes, but the camaraderie, support, and willingness to rally together in tough times really sets this chamber apart. As a business owner, it’s refreshing to know that this resource exists whose mission is to help us thrive and grow through networking, partnerships, and giving back to our community."

"The Greater Baltimore Chamber of Commerce is a crucial pillar of my business plan. The Chamber offers direct support relevant to my strategies for growth and sustainability. GBCC connects me with business owners and consumers in the community and fosters the relationship-building process. I find colleagues and business partners within the Chamber, and more importantly, reach clients outside the organization. My GBCC membership keeps my services and brand ‘top of mind’ and is a key aspect of my direct and drip marketing efforts. I show up and participate, and the GBCC model delivers."

"The Greater Baltimore Chamber of Commerce feels like home! It’s great to be around like-minded business owners who are invested in our community. These types of organizations are meant to be more than just a title, more than just a resume builder, but an impactful experience, and that can be found here. There’s passion at every event the chamber hosts, and I guarantee that if you’re invested and genuine about networking, you’ll find meaningful connections at the very first event you attend. I did!"
Marcellis Mosby II, Owner at Disinfect It
"Joining the Greater Baltimore Chamber of Commerce was one of the best decisions for our business. We have been in business for 9 years and belong to many chambers and business associations. This has by far been the best! Beth and team do exactly what a chamber is supposed to do: they support your business, help you generate leads, and promote your business. They hold networking and events that will help your business grow!"
