Dear Friends of Talbot County and the Talbot County Chamber of Commerce:
I am honored to welcome you to the Tradewinds directory for 2016. Our vibrant and growing community is well represented in the businesses listed in the pages of Tradewinds. The Talbot Chamber of Commerce has been proud to advocate on behalf of its many members for more than 50 years, and will continue those efforts as our community evolves.
The Chamber is involved in many aspects driving the economic well-being of our community including business development programs, legislative issues at the local, state, and federal levels, educational opportunities, networking events, outreach and charitable support, social media, and internet advancement.
All of these efforts by the Chamber are designed to strengthen our community by providing resources and services that will support Talbot County businesses well into the future. We work to help our members grow their brands, generate more sales, and create more jobs.
During 2015, the Talbot Chamber made more than 20,000 referrals to our membership of over 800 businesses and individuals, and we will grow that number in 2016! A Chamber membership is an excellent value for any business, regardless of size. Our growing Member2Member discount program is just one example of the many programs intended to drive business to our members.
The Tradewinds directory of the Talbot County Chamber of Commerce is an informative resource that connects our members with the community. Please keep this directory handy and use it to find and support local restaurants, shops and services.
If you are already a member I encourage you to become more involved, take advantage of the benefits offered, share your expertise and expand the visibility of your business. If you are not a member, please attend one of our events or contact me, the professional chamber staff, or any member of the board of directors to learn how the chamber can make a difference for you and your business.
The Chamber is excited for the opportunity to work with each of you to grow your business, strengthen our community, and support the economic vitality of Talbot County.
