Chamber Update


By Liz League

We are excited to announce our newest members of the chamber: Document Roadmap LLC, Eco Interior Maintenance, Magothy Payments, GYMGUYZ Severna Park, Asbury Church Assistance Network, and 5Linx.

On February 13, we held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of Lisa’s Cakepops in Severna Park. Lisa’s Cakepops is the brainchild of Lisa Schneiderman, a former stockbroker turned baker. She produces magical, creative and delicious pops for any occasion, and the pops are heavenly. You can order specialty custom pops or purchase directly from her store. Visit her at 836 Ritchie Highway, Suite 16, in Severna Park.

On February 14, we held a ribbon cutting for ASMM and Digital Marketing’s new headquarters in Millersville. Ann Brennan and her team are superb marketeers with vast experience in getting organizations noticed on social media. Ann is also the founder of Burgers and Bands for Suicide Prevention. Her mission is to open the dialogue with young people by working in the schools, and to bring awareness to the community. Please attend their upcoming fundraising event at Severna Park Taphouse on Sunday, May 19, from 11:00am–8:00pm. Bands will play all day. Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite.

On March 13, we held a Successful Women in Business luncheon with the Pasadena Business Association and the Northern Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce at La Fontaine Bleue in Glen Burnie. More than 50 women attended and networked.

On March 26, Ann Brennan of ASMM presented “Digital Marketing Strategies” to more than 25 attendees. The lunch was held at the wonderful Romilo’s in Severna Park. Visit our chamber Facebook page for a video of Ann’s informative presentation.

We have four Gold sponsors for our Shop Local Fun Fiesta, to be held on May 4 from 11:00am to 3:00pm in Park Plaza. They are SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park, Kogen Dojo in Severna Park, the Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi in Arnold, and Repke Fitness in Millersville. Each sponsor will present a check for $500 to their charity of choice. Bronze sponsors include Mathnasium in Severna Park and Honey Baked Ham in Severna Park.

We look forward to seeing you at our Shop Local Fun Fiesta, where we will have local businesses exhibiting from a wide range of professions, face painting, a photo booth, games, demonstrations, performances, food, giveaways, K-9 demos, fast pitch, pedal cars, a cake walk and more. We encourage members of the community to bring donations (cash, gift cards or food) for SPAN, a service organization that helps needy families in our neighborhoods. Your donation gets you a free photo in the photo booth.

Our Fourth of July Parade has been a cherished tradition for decades, and this year will not disappoint. Our theme is “Let Freedom (B)ring – Celebrating America’s and Our Community’s Generosity.”

We would love to have you as a member of our chamber, as we know the value that small businesses and local organizations bring to the health of our community. Call us at 410-647-3900 or or visit
