Frederick County Chamber of Commerce to Launch New Mission

It will be presented at the Chambers Membership Meeting Wednesday night.

FREDERICK, MD.  (LG)    The Frederick County Chamber of Commerce has a new mission, vision, and core values. President and CEO Rick Weldon says the change was initiated after a membership satisfaction survey was conducted.

“And like other member satisfaction surveys that the Chamber has done in the past, we didn’t really expect much of a response, because a lot of people tend not to respond to those things.  But we were shocked and amazed at the level of responsiveness,” said Weldon.

Several hundred responses were received from current members, former members, board members and staff, Weldon said.  “It was literally overwhelming.  Not what we anticipated at all.  And a lot of it spoke to how our role in the community has evolved in the last decade to decade in a half.”

An unveiling celebration of the new mission will take place on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, at the Evangelical Reformed Church of Christ, beginning at 7:30 a.m.
