The Frederick County Chamber of Commerce does not know with certainty how many of its members represent minority-owned businesses, according to chamber President/CEO Rick Weldon. A new committee within the chamber seeks to find that out. The tentatively titled Economic Inclusion Alliance will be chaired by local business owner Jarad Bowens, who operates Benefactor Events. “We’re just really out to try and address inclusion, access and representation within the chamber membership itself,” Bowens said of the committee in an interview.
