Testimonials-and-reviewsThe more you get involved in the GGCC the more you will benefit.  I have built many strong business relationships and have learned a lot from taking the time to get to know people involved in the chamber.”Brittany Hilton, Senior Marketing Associate, Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union



“Since the first event I attended with my husband in September 2010. I have thoroughly enjoyed the variety of events and networking opportunities given by the GGCC.”Noelle Jennings, The Jennings Business Group, LLC


“By far, one of my favorite events…. GREAT CONTACTS!!!!!” Tamara Clarke, Catering Manager, Hilton, Gaithersburg (with regards to a 2010 Business Networking Before Nine event at BlackRock Center for the Arts)

“My home computer got infected with a virus and several friends tried to help me fix the problem.  They even had me buy an anti-virus program and I thought I was all set.  A few days later the virus was back and I was not able to access the internet.  I thought of calling Dan Videlock from D & M Consulting, since I know him from the Chamber meetings.  I called him in the morning and he was able to come to my house within a couple of hours.  He was able to fix my problem, installed an exterior hard drive to back up my files and was finished within 1 1/2 hours.  His fee was reasonable and the fact that he came to me, was very convenient.  I had to contact him for a few other questions and he immediately got back with me.  I would not hesitate to recommend Dan to my family and friends for any computer related problems.”  -Gizelle Petit, Assistant Vice President, Branch Manager, Sandy Spring Bank regarding Daniel Videlock of D&M Consulting


I first joined the GGCC in 2008 through my own company Strive Business Solutions and now belong as well through my role as a Marketing Executive for The Gazette. A job I got because of a chamber relationship. What makes our chamber so strong is not only how it supports our members and business but how we support the community through food, clothing, toy drives or hands on projects. In my role as Vice Chair of Membership and previously as Vice Chair of Member Programs I have seen how our leadership and members engage, support and grow on multiple levels. Our work on Legislative and Economic Affairs is impressive. More than once I have heard members talk about the long term relationships that began at one of networking events. When people ask me what I like about my chamber I feel confident saying I think it’s one of the best chambers in the state of Maryland. I am proud to say I belong to the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce” -Colette Releford, President, Strive Business Solutions, LLC
