Coalition Working to Make Maryland Business More Competitive

"We think we can make some positive change by working together and hopefully we'll see some signs of that in the general assembly session in 2014 but we're really looking longer term in 2015, after the November elections," said Kathleen Snyder, Maryland Chamber of Commerce.
WASHINGTON COUNTY, Md. - On Thursday morning, community and business leaders met with the Maryland Chamber of Commerce officials to discuss the Maryland Competitiveness Coalition and preview the 2014 General Assembly session.

The coalition's goal is to bring the business community together from across the state to help Maryland become a global competitor.
 
"We're meeting with all the gubernatorial candidates, we're meeting with other business people, legislators in Annapolis to help draw attention to the fact that if we focus on growing small businesses throughout Maryland, taking advantage of our assets, creating news jobs, retaining jobs, everybody in Maryland will benefit," said Kathleen Snyder, President and CEO of the Maryland Competitiveness Coalition

The Hagerstown-Washington Chamber of Commerce was one of the first partners to join the coalition. Officials say they're meeting with legislators about creating and retaining more jobs and growing more small businesses in the state.

"We think we can make some positive change by working together and hopefully we'll see some signs of that in the general assembly session in 2014 but we're really looking longer term in 2015, after the November elections," said Snyder.

Maryland chamber of commerce representatives will be meeting with chambers in Garrett and Allegany counties this week as well.
