Mark Your Calendars to Attend This Important Discussion and Networking Opportunity
Members of the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Berkeley Chamber of Commerce are already preparing for a successful 2013 legislative session to continue the mission to improve South Carolina’s business climate and global competitiveness. This important policy-changing work begins at home, at the grassroots level.
You are invited to join the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and Berkeley Chamber of Commerce for the Coastal Grassroots Meeting on Thursday, August 30, from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce (4500 Leeds Avenue, Suite 100).
The Grassroots Meeting will be an open-forum session and is one of the first steps in creating the Competitiveness Agenda, the business community’s annual list of legislative priorities. It will begin with a legislative review from the South Carolina Chamber’s Public Policy staff before moving into an open discussion of legislative issues that you believe must be addressed.
Participants bring compelling issues to the meetings, which helps the Chamber create its Competitiveness Agenda. Once issues are defined and strategies are developed, the Chamber works with legislative officials to create an environment that will improve the business climate in South Carolina.
Time and again, the business community has seen the power of a unified grassroots network in pushing through vital issues and halting those that are harmful to the state’s business climate. Numerous business leaders, community leaders and legislators attended last year’s regional grassroots meeting.
