Jackie Sturr, our new Membership Engagement Manager, comes to us, most recently, from the Baltimore Sun with 20 years of advertising and marketing experience behind her.  During her tenure in advertising, Jackie worked for the York Newspaper Company in York, PA, baltimoresun.com, the Baltimore Sun and Patuxent Publishing Company where she was the Community Relations Manager for their Howard County products.

During her time with Patuxent Publishing Company, Jackie sat on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee of the BWCC, chaired its marketing and trade show committees and participated with the golf committee.  “I secured a lot of business for Patuxent during my time with the chamber.  We published the chamber’s membership directory and trade show guide, and I can’t count the number of people who approached me about advertising their business in a Patuxent newspaper.  The sales manager couldn’t have been happier,” said Sturr.

In addition, she presented and won the contract for Patuxent to do the sales and design of the Howard Transit and Connect-A-Ride vehicle advertisements during her board tenure.

During her earlier time with the BWCC, Jackie made many business contacts, some of which turned into friends.  She says that she attended as many networking events as she could which allowed her to stay current with the other members.  “Mixers and events are a fun and great way to spread yourself and your business around,” said Sturr.  “Where else can you go and have a built-in audience?  And besides, everyone is there for the same reason.  So relax, have fun and make money,” said Sturr, who resides in the Corridor with her engineer husband and 7-year-old daughter.

Want to get the most out of your BWCC membership?  Contact Jackie for information about Committees, sponsorship for events, attending a networking breakfast, “Awkward to Awesome,”  Membership 101 and more.   She serves as the member’s advocate guide and ombudsperson, getting you connected in the region.
