Programs for Chamber Members

At the Howard County Chamber, we are committed to helping our members get the most out of their membership, with a variety of affinity programs that help our member businesses save money and access services at the best possible prices.

Office Depot Discount Program

Our partnership with Office Depot is back and better than ever! Soon, as part of your Chamber membership, you will automatically have access to a special group savings plan from Office Depot. The group savings will get our members significant discounts on everything from paper, to toner and technology solutions to copy and print services. You also get FREE next day delivery on any order over $50! Click here for more information about the Office Depot program.

Chamber Travel Program

We have completely revamped our Chamber Travel Program for 2018! We are working with a new travel partner and will be revealing the dates and destination for our fall trip in the next few weeks, but just as in years past, we will be offering affordable international travel with trips that include visits to historic and cultural sites, shopping, dining, and a close-up look at business activities in other countries.

Accident Fund Worker's Compensation Insurance

This is also our first time partnering with Accident Fund Worker's Compensation Insurance helping businesses keep their workers safe and their costs down. Accident Fund's Group Program benefits include a 5% up-front savings on your premium, opportunity for dividend payments based on Group's loss history, no minimum premium to qualify and convenient billing options.  Click here for more information about Accident Fund Worker's Compensation Insurance which we will be rolling out to members in the next few months.

Energy Co-op with CQI Associates

Our members can now join the Commercial Energy Purchasing Cooperative brought to you by CQI Associates who has negotiated prices with licensed electricity and natural gas suppliers to get the lowest rates to you. Every time a member joins the Commercial Energy Purchasing Cooperative, it increases consumer purchasing power that results in giving the group the power of purchasing electric and natural gas at more affordable, consistent rates and at prices lower than what is available to the individual businesses.

Veteran Parking Sign Initiative

Give a little to those who have given a lot. Show your appreciation to those who have served in the armed forces. Reserve a parking spot - or more - in your parking lot, for veterans. The Veteran Reserved Parking Initiative can be your way of saying "Thank You for Your Service" to our military service members, past and present. It is a visual way of showing appreciation for veterans who live, work, shop, and play in Howard County. Details here.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Federation

Through our partnership with the U.S. Chamber, the Howard County Chamber of Commerce provides small business members with resources, information, advocacy, and savings. Whether it's advice, research advocacy on national issues, savings on legal documents, FedEx, and more, your Chamber membership provides you with one more benefit to save you time and money.
