S.C. Chamber Announces 19-Stop Grassroots Tour
August 9, 2017
COLUMBIA, S.C. - The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce today announced its 2017 Grassroots Tour, scheduled for September and October.
Each year, the State Chamber hits the road to hear from business leaders across the state about the issues facing their companies. The Grassroots Tour is part of the South Carolina Chamber Alliance Partnership that connects the state, regional and local Chambers of Commerce and their members. The feedback received from the meetings will help shape the 2018 Competitiveness Agenda, which lays out the business community’s priorities for next year’s legislative session.
Members of the business community across South Carolina will have an opportunity to discuss the most important issues facing businesses large and small with S.C. Chamber leadership at each of the tour's 19 stops.
"We look forward to the Grassroots Tour each year because it gives us a chance to go around the state and hear directly from a diverse group of business owners about what impacts their bottom line," said S.C. Chamber President and CEO Ted Pitts. "The feedback we hear during the tour is critical, and we use it to help shape our list of priorities for the upcoming legislative session. We thank our local Chamber partners for hosting us and look forward to hitting the road in September."
