Member Highlight: Farmers & Merchants Bank

From the beginning, Farmers and Merchants Bank has remained locally owned, operated and headquartered in Upperco, MD. A public banking institution founded in 1919, our independence has allowed us to provide customers with a team of local bank professionals that care deeply about our customers and their personal and business success. We currently operate six traditional branches to serve our local community – Upperco, Hampstead, Greenmount, Reisterstown, Owings Mills and Westminster.

Unlike the larger banks that may take deposits in one state and lend in others, community banks like Farmers and Merchants Bank reinvest your deposits back into the community in which we serve, by extending loans in the neighborhoods where our depositors live and work thus helping to keep our local communities vibrant and growing. Our community bank officers are accessible to our customers, right here in this community.

Save on Utlity Bills : Residential and Commercial Properties
URGENT: Prices are Rising

Join the Chamber Energy Purchasing Cooperative
The Northwest Chamber of Commerce has partnered with energy management experts, CQI Associates, to administer and manage the Chamber Energy Purchasing Cooperative since 2004. The increased purchasing power of the Chamber Purchasing Cooperative has allowed members to receive lower rates than they could typically attain on their own.

The Clean Energy Jobs-Renewable Portfolio Standard Bill implemented by the Maryland Legislature on May 23, 2019 could result in increased electricity rates by 14% to 18%.  The Bill contains an option to avoid this increase if a contract is signed prior to October 1, 2019. Therefore, seeking a long-term contract extension (or a new contract) now could help you avoid a potential cost increase.

If your current rate is higher than $0.072 per kWh or $0.50 per therm, you may want to consider joining the cooperative and participating in this next round of competitive supplier pricing.  The current campaign begins June 24, 2019 for both new participants and renewal members who have contract renewal dates through to June 2021.

1. Complete and sign the attached Letter of Authorization
2. Provide one copy of your most recent Utility bill(s), all pages, for all electricity and or natural gas accounts you are enrolling
3. Scan and email copies of the above documents to Jennie Anderson at
jennie@cqiassociates.com or fax to 410-630-5911
4. Send the original documents to the Chamber

If you have any questions or require additional details, please contact Joe Tabeling with CQI Associates at joe@cqiassociates.com or 443-472-3870.
