Chamber's Brown Bag Lunch Discussion

Local professionals are invited to a Brown Bag Lunch Discussion at the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce office on Friday, March 26 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. The open forum discussion, moderated by Chamber board members, is an opportunity for the business community to share their challenges, best practices, goals, and ideas with fellow Chamber members.

This month, participants will learn how to save money with free transportation benefits, including teleworking, government tax savings, flexible schedules, coworking, and other creative ideas. Experts from Frederick County TransIT will share practical tips for saving money and increasing productivity.

“Traffic and transportation are always a concern for the business community, and we’re thrilled to connect local organizations with resources to help them save money and make life easier for their employees,” said Ric Adams, Chamber President & CEO. “After record snowfall in February and the decreased productivity that resulted from travel restrictions and school closings, I think many of us are also interested in learning about technology and other tools that will help us work effectively outside of the office.”

Space is limited to 30 participants. This event is free for Chamber members and $10 for non-member guests. Register online at or call 301.662.4164 x 201 before March 23.
