Introducing the Building Bridges to Recovery Coalition

In the wake of the catastrophic Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse, the Maryland Chamber of Commerce has joined forces with the Greater Baltimore Committee, World Trade Center Institute, Greater Washington Partnership, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and other key partners to launch the Building Bridges to Recovery Coalition. This broad-based coalition brings together stakeholders from across sectors to address the challenges and disruptions caused by this tragic disaster. The coalition serves as a centralized advocate and resource hub for businesses throughout Maryland. We are facilitating information exchange, resource sharing and advocacy efforts to support organizations of all sizes and industries impacted throughout the state of Maryland.

Strength in Partnership 

Now more than ever, the business community must stand united. The repercussions of this disaster reverberate far beyond physical infrastructure, impacting the very livelihoods of businesses, employees, and families. By pooling our resources, expertise and influence, we can amplify our collective voice, enhance our capacity to navigate these challenges effectively, and advocate for the interests of Maryland's business community.
