The season 3 finale was co-hosted by Joe Porpiglia (D&D Consulting and Training) and Lauren Hagan (Frederick Chamber) at the Chamber Studio.
Our episode opens with Dr. Mimi McLaughlin of McLaughlin Family Chiropractic. Dr. Mimi discusses workplace ergonomics, because it’s critical to stay fit in order to increase productivity and wellness in the workplace! Watch this episode for Dr. Mimi’s tips.
Co-hosted by Jon-Mikel Bailey (Wood Street, Inc.) and Lauren Hagan (Frederick Chamber) on tour at Unique Optique.

Our pal Julia “Little J” Schillaci was just named an Entrepreneur of the Year by the Entrepreneur Council of Frederick County. Little J is the CEO of SoapPrizes. Her mom Beth is Chief Pouring Officer, as well as a long-time Chamber member and volunteer.
Scott Rolle is a Frederick-based attorney who appears on the History Channel’s Decoded show. We’re thrilled to have a bona fide celebrity on Chamber TV. I hope Scott isn’t too intimidated by our high-tech setup here in the Chamber “studio.”
A list of G8 tips for businesses was one of the most popular sections in our email newsletter this week, so we wanted to share it here, too.
Please note: Episode 18 of Chamber TV is scheduled for this Friday. If you plan to join us in the live studio audience, leave a few extra minutes early to avoid traffic delays. The Chamber TV “studio” is located a few miles outside of downtown Frederick, and we don’t anticipate that the G8 Summit or related activity will have much impact in our area of town.
This Friday and Saturday, the Group of 8 (G8) Summit, for governments representing the world’s largest economies, will meet in northern Frederick County at Camp David.
This forum brings international attention to the Frederick region. Residents and businesses are encouraged to prepare for increased traffic, road closures, and activity, including the possibility of protests and demonstrations.
Please take a moment to review these resources, make a plan, and share it with your employees:
Season 2 of Chamber TV continues with Episode 17, hosted by Joe Porpiglia and Jessica Hibbard.
Tracey Lucas (Frederick County Public Schools) graduated from Leadership Frederick County in 2008, and now serves as President of the LFC Council. She joins us for an update on LFC and some tips for anyone interested in applying for the Class of 2013.
John Bellomo stops by to tell us about the Maryland Shakespeare Festival, the impact of arts and culture on our state’s economic, and the power of “serious play.”
Did you know? D. John Markey was our Chamber’s first president. Just like Ric Adams, our current President & CEO, Mr. Markey was born and raised in Frederick County and attended Frederick High School. He was a merchant who sold hats and shoes in Frederick, and unlike our current president, he has his own Wikipedia page.
John Bellomo, Artistic Director at Maryland Shakespeare Festival, will talk with us about “serious play” and how arts and culture opportunities benefit the business community. (I think we should also ask him to explain this photo …)
Tracey Lucas, President of the Leadership Frederick County Council and a 2008 LFC graduate, will give us an update on the LFC Alumni Association and share her insight with those who are thinking about applying for next year’s class.

Season 2 of Chamber TV continues with Episode 16, hosted by Jon-Mikel Bailey and Jessica Hibbard.

COL Allan Darden – Commander at U.S. Army Garrison – Fort Detrick

We’ve been working to get COL Darden, a Chamber board member, on the show for several months, and we’re thrilled that this episode will work with his schedule. We’ll be talking about the latest news from Fort Detrick, and how it impacts our business community.
HIS Sign is a new Chamber member company, and we’re looking forward to chatting with Brian about Frederick’s deaf community, and how local businesses can provide great customer service to deaf customers.

Did you know? In the late 1960s, there were no traffic lights on Route 40 between Route 15 and Middletown. If you worked in Frederick, you could drive to the MIddletown diner for lunch and be back in 45 minutes!
