Business Development Council

Additional Navigation 

Business Development Council events and programs are designed to provide resources and connections to help small, mid-sized and minority-owned businesses grow and prosper. Council initiatives include:

BDC On the Road: A series of targeted meetings that provide Maryland Chamber members the opportunity to network with some of the region's top leaders. The events also provide attendees the opportunity to learn how to compete for business with some of the state's large and mid-sized companies and institutions.

Business Breakthrough Awards Program: An awards program designed to recognize the dedication, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit displayed by Maryland's businesses.

Executive Referral Groups: Connecting small groups of members in non-competing industries that call upon similar customers to share leads, introductions and discuss best practices.
