Insights and Information

Action-Oriented

We believe our South Carolina is made stronger by working together for a greater good, which is a "best in nation" business environment. Our policymakers don't always understand business's needs. We're here to advocate and educate for positive change - for all businesses. In order for our state to achieve lasting success, it must be built on a foundation of hard work, but cemented with the right policy - defending and promoting a free-market system that allows the private sector to prosper. We're here to make sure this happens. Investors receive our weekly ChamberBuzz featuring SC-centric news summaries and follow specific legislation through our Action Alerts which give regular updates on bills we are tracking in Columbia and DC.

More Capable Through Connections

South Carolina is as small state but does have distinct regions with each one doing things a little differently. We make distances seem shorter with key networking opportunities - so that together, we can make our state stronger. Let's cross paths with key decision-makers and then merge onto the road to true progress for business.

Streamline for Success

In the fast-paced business landscape, we keep you in the loop with our newsletters and information available in the members only section of our website. Our publications on topics ranging from Workforce to our Legislative Scorecard provide more substantive information about critical issues. ASCEND, our annual magazine, gives a glimpse of what makes SC the best place to live, work, and do business. Additional benefits to members are our Chamber Choice insurance program, supplemental insurance plans, HR Simple - human resources publications, and e-Certify for our members who must provide Certificates of Origin.
