In 2017, the Chamber began raising funds to support women who have experienced some additional challenges and are under-represented in Montgomery County. The Chamber understands the importance of professional development and representation. In honor of 2017 Women’s Leadership Conference speaker and Secretary of Education, Dr. Dietra Trent, the Chamber is pleased to provide a scholarship in her name.
