Potomac Chamber Promotes Businesses, Community

Members of the Potomac business community make up the Potomac Chamber of Commerce. There they have an opportunity to meet other local businessmen and women to network and socialize.

“Member businesses are a part of an organization that provides networking opportunities, business leads and referrals, proactive leadership and an improved business climate, all for the betterment of the community as a whole,” according to the chamber website.

The chamber organizes the annual Potomac Day celebration each fall. The day includes a parade, children’s festival and petting zoo, business fair and car show. Potomac Day will be held Saturday, Oct. 20 this year, celebrating the 36th anniversary of the annual celebration.

Potomac still has the feel of a small town, Jennifer Matheson, director of operations for the Potomac Chamber, said in an interview last year. “There is a solid foundation in Potomac,” she said. “It’s nice to be able to go into a little town and know it.”

Complaints from residents are few, as are problems other than parking in the shopping centers at the intersection of River and Falls roads, she said last year.

Still, it’s nice to have a community with so few problems, she said.

“Everything is so fast-paced in this world,” she said. “You feel good here.”

The Potomac Chamber of Commerce offices are at 10220 River Road.

Hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., closed on all major holidays.
