Chamber Update


We are excited to announce our newest members of the chamber: Cassilly Financial Group; Joanna Kouvaras, CPA; new bronze member Victory Packaging; W.A. Booth Plumbing Services; and Find and Follow Your Passion.

We held four ribbon-cutting celebrations in October. Your Daily Finances, a new member and new business in Severna Park, held a grand opening ceremony for its financial management and accounting services company. We participated in a multi-chamber ribbon cutting for the grand opening of Anne Arundel Dermatology and Meridiem Derm Spa’s newest location in Millersville. Capitol Title opened its doors to a new location in Severna Park with a ribbon cutting. And Thinking Tree Psychology celebrated its three years in successful practice.

The Successful Women in Business, chaired by Nancy Greer of the Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi, and Pam Spearman, independent consultant, held a multi-chamber women’s luncheon at the Walden Country Club in Crofton. Our featured speaker was Dr. Laura Amodei, radiologist and owner of Bay Radiology. Dr. Amodei spoke about the latest advancements in the treatment of breast cancer. Her practice is the first facility in Anne Arundel County to offer ultra-high-resolution, low-dose 3D mammography and tomosynthesis-guided biopsy.

Our Shoptoberfest event, held at Park Plaza on October 5, was a resounding success. The event featured exhibitors (many who were selling products), trick-or-treating at every booth, a costume contest held at 1:00pm for all ages, food, music, live broadcasting by WNAV and more. We thank our sponsors, SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park, Landmark Roofing, Continental Realty Corporation, WNAV and Franklin’s Toys.

Our 2019 Driving Force for Business golf tournament was held at the newly renovated and gorgeous Chartwell Golf and Country Club. The weather was perfect, and the golfers had a wonderful time. Many thanks to our sponsors: Live! Casino & Hotel, Chick-fil-A, Cedar Square Homes, David Orso, Rosso Commercial Real Estate, Garry’s Grill, The Matt Wyble Team of CENTURY 21 New Millennium, Barranco Severna Park Funeral Home, Eco Interior Maintenance, The Bank of Glen Burnie, Severn Bank, Persico Asset Management, Park Tavern, SERVPRO Annapolis/Severna Park, Moran Insurance, M&T Bank, Title Excellence, Severna Park Handyman, Gardiner & Appel, Severna Park Lanes, Griswold Home Care, Bruster’s Ice Cream, and Broadleaf Tobacco.

Our second meeting of the chamber’s new Health and Wellness Coalition, hosted by Spring Arbor of Severna Park, was well-attended and well-received. Louben Repke of Repke Fitness was our speaker and talked about ways to work with medical practitioners for referrals. We have also settled on a model for the monthly meetings, which will feature a main speaker and two others giving shorter talks. We are thrilled about the direction of this new group, chaired by Jennifer Crisp of A Bridge to Wholeness.

We would love for you to be a part of all the exciting things going on. Join our chamber, and connect with other businesses and the community. Call us at 410-647-3900 or or visit
