Inform | Encourage | Support

A Message From Our President Jean Wright

As the Frederick community and its businesses continue to recover from this pandemic, I thought it would be appropriate to recognize the work of the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce.  With its #FrederickStrong awareness initiative, the Chamber is working to bring the business community together.  That’s why WBN, as a Chamber member, supports this effort by displaying the #FrederickStrong logo.  Our mission has always been to inform, encourage and support one another.  Let’s keep that in mind as we patronize local businesses as well as those of our WBN members. Let’s work together to be stronger and so we are able to get through these times together.  During the next few weeks, you’ll receive a call from one of our board members.  We want to know how you’re doing and how we can help support YOU!  

We’ve been having some great topics for our monthly virtual speaker series.  For our June meeting, we had an important topic about cybersecurity presented by Kris Miner of Innovative Incorporated.  There was good interaction with the group and I hope you were able to walk away with some great tips about protecting yourself when you are using your computer. 

Our July speaker will be Michele Nusum-Smith who will present how you and your business can support community impact such as the key community impact issues & priorities for Frederick County, ways you and your small business can help non-profits, why supporting charity is good for business, and how partnering with a nonprofit can be mutually beneficial.  We hope you will join us for this informative talk about community involvement and your business.

Our signature annual event Steps to Success is being planned for October 5-8 and we hope you will reserve those dates on your calendar.  This will be a virtual event with sessions and speakers set for each day.  More information about sponsorships will be available on the website.  

Enjoy the first days of summer and keep all of our upcoming WBN events on your calendar because we don’t take a vacation!  

Stay strong and safe,
