• Who We Are

    Years ago, business leaders discovered that by joining forces, they could become an important voice to articulate the needs of their members, and to work to maintain an environment that would help them succeed. Thus Chambers of Commerce were founded.

    Even today, the Charles County Chamber has as its most important role: the voicing of opinions in public forums that reflect the needs and desires of its members. Chambers have become much more as the years have evolved, and the Charles County Chamber of Commerce is certainly a good example, with experience dating back to 1956.


    The Charles County Chamber of Commerce provides leadership in supporting and promoting the free enterprise system through business development, education, and sound ethical values for the benefit of our members and our communities.


    The Chamber is governed by a 21 member Board of Directors and a seven member Executive Committee. Its programs and services are carried out by staff along with our active committees comprised of dozens of energetic volunteers.
