5. Why did you join the Maryland Black Chamber of Commerce? What are you looking to get from your membership here? I joined the MBCC for various reasons. I wanted to connect with other businesses for personal and professional growth. I also joined to reach out to business owners regarding my firm’s availability to meet needs that they often aren’t aware they even have until someone sues them. One of my goals is to spread the importance of consulting or having an employment attorney to business owners than plan on having employees or currently have employees.
