There is power in numbers when Chamber members take advantage of money-saving recycling and energy co-ops, affordable international tours, and member-to-member discounts.

Accident Fund Worker’s Compensation Insurance
Howard County Chamber of Commerce partner programs also include access to Accident Fund Worker’s Compensation Insurance, which helps businesses keep their workers safe and their costs down.
Benefits of the Accident Fund’s Group Program 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.
Energy Co-op with CQI Associates
Chamber members can now join the Commercial Energy Purchasing Cooperative. The opportunity is brought to you by CQI Associates, who has negotiated prices with licensed electricity and natural gas suppliers to deliver 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.
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, or more, your Chamber membership provides you with one more benefit to save you time and money.
Better Business Bureau Membership Discount
The Howard County Chamber and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Greater Maryland have teamed up to offer benefits to their members. Chamber members receive 25% off the annual BBB accreditation fee (new accreditations only).
The Daily Record
New Chamber members receive a free, three-month print and digital subscription to “The Daily Record.” Keep abreast of important breaking news in the region.
Certificate of Origin
Register through the Chamber for discounts on your electronic Certificate of Origin documents. Create, submit, and print electronically certified documents right at your own desk. Electronic Certificates of Origin provide easier and faster Customs clearance and productivity gains for companies. You do NOT need to be a member to use this service.
