Chamber History

The Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1918 as the Annapolis Chamber of Commerce. At that time, the primary center of business activity in Anne Arundel County was in the city of Annapolis. The rest of Anne Arundel County was rural farmland and sparsely populated. The far northern part of the county was a residential suburb of Baltimore City. 

After the Second World War, development in Anne Arundel County began in earnest and commercial activity in the county began to grow. The Annapolis Chamber of Commerce created a committee of the chamber to focus on concerns of particular interest to county businesses and the development of commercial and residential property in Anne Arundel County. The Chamber of Commerce then changed its name to the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce. 

Today, the Anne Arundel Chamber Chamber of Commerce is known for creating innovative and workable solutions to problems and issues facing Anne Arundel County and the region. In everything it does, the Chamber of Commerce strives to make Annapolis and Anne Arundel County a better place to live, work and do business.
