The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce jumpstarts their annual grassroots tour around the Palmetto State. The chamber will visit with 45 local chambers and groups at 28 different stops from August to October. The tour serves as a touch base with local chambers to better understand what local business leaders need, want and care about most. The information gathered serves as a critical component in developing the SC Chamber’s robust competitiveness agenda representing the South Carolina business community’s priorities. The agenda is released each year before the state legislative session begins and guides the SC Chamber’s advocacy and efforts that year.
