Garrett County Chamber of Commerce
The Garrett County Chamber of Commerce provides support for small businesses and the tourism industry, making this membership organization of 500 a unique engine for economic growth in Maryland. The marketing and advertising of Deep Creek Lake and the promotion of recreation through travel information at its visitors center make this industry representative both a destination marketing organization (DMO) and a convention and visitors bureau (CVB). Unlike similar nonprofit organizations, the Chamber is a business association supporting economic development while preserving a quality of life. Garrett County, which neighbors Allegany County and lies in the Allegheny Mountains, is a magnet to incubator companies.
