The Towson Chamber of Commerce, Inc. is a private, nonprofit business organization founded in 1964 to plan a program of action to enhance the Towson Community. We represent more than 350 businesses that are concerned with making Towson a better place to live, work and visit.
One of our key functions is to serve as a unified voice for Towson businesses, both at public hearings and as a representative to the other Towson groups which all share a common goal to assure planned growth in Towson. Our mission is to strengthen existing businesses as well as to help new ventures in Towson succeed. Several ways of assisting and promoting local companies is the annual publication and distribution of our Towson Chamber of Commerce Business Directory and our newly created website designed to promote business members on a world-wide scale.
Another function of the organization is to coordinate and promote special events, which help to bring visitors to the Towson area.
