The President's Letter

Cathy Schneider
2017 President

Thank you to our Business Development Committee, Sally Grace of Peace A Pizza, Omar Jennings of AXA Advisors, Eric Lamb of Property Title & Escrow, Bill Lynam of Head Graphics and Dennis Sullivan of Breakthrough Pros who on May 4th, presented their second Bacon N Business learning seminar. A delicious breakfast was hosted by Brightview Rolling Hills in their beautiful meeting room. Thank you to our speaker, Tammira Lucas of The Business Doctor, who showed us practical steps to increase your website ranking on search engines and how to attract more customers to your website. Tammira’s energy was infectious!!

On May 7th, we kicked off spring with our annual Farmers Market, where you can enjoy live music while shopping for farm fresh products. As always, it was well attended and many of our vendors sold out. With the market’s popularity and a waiting list of vendors wanting to join us, the Chamber Board of Directors decided to move the market across the street to The Shops of Mellor, 15 Mellor Ave., in the parking lot of Peace A Pizza where additional space will allow the market to grow. We will be moving to this new location on June 11th. Thank you to Booth Properties for 8 years of partnering with the Chamber and hosting the market in their parking lot at 730 Frederick Road, soon to be renamed Catonsville Square. We could not have started the market without their support. Mark your calendar for every Sunday from now until November 19th to enjoy the Sunday Farmers Market in Catonsville.

We were also pleased to have a great turnout at our May 18th Spring Open House at the Chamber office. Members and guests were invited to this free event to come meet, mingle and network with existing members. We enjoyed the wonderful food provided by Whitehouse Caterers, and I can’t forget to mention that it was accompanied by one of my delicious chocolate filled Edible Arrangements! A huge thank you to Oliver Arnold of MassMutual Financial Group, the captain of the Chamber’s Relay for Life Team. Oliver coordinated some fun activities sponsored by The Win Bin. Thank you again, Bob Sansbury of Whitehouse Caterers and my Edible Arrangements team who always support the Chamber and makes our events extra special.

We look forward to the kick off of Frederick Road Fridays on June 2nd. Come say hello to your Chamber Board that will be hard at work. See the Chamber’s Facebook page for the summer schedule!
As you can see, your Board of Directors, their Committees, and the Chamber office, are hard at work providing our members the opportunity to promote, build, learn, and support their businesses and the local community. When you see our Executive Director, Teal Cary, and her staff, Jackie and Kate, please help me thank them for ALL that they do to make it happen!
