About Us

The Chesapeake Chapter serves PCMA members located in Maryland, Delaware, and southern Pennsylvania. We pride ourselves on being a friendly chapter, one that welcomes both newcomers and longtime members. Our membership is 53% planners and 47% suppliers.

Our chapter hosts a variety of educational and networking programs throughout the year: the annual Best in Show speaker, our highly-anticipated annual summer venues tour, creative networking events to socialize with colleagues, and charitable events. Our events also showcase unique and fun destinations across the region Baltimore, Annapolis, Columbia, and the BWI area through our sponsors and event hosts.

We know you will find a place with the Chesapeake Chapter, so we hope you will join one of our events soon! 
The nearly 200 members of the Chesapeake Chapter look forward to welcoming you to our next event.
