S.C. Chamber Announces 2018 Grassroots Tour

August 29, 2018

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce announces its 2018 Grassroots Tour stops.

Each September, the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce partners with regional and local chambers of commerce on the Chamber Alliance Grassroots Tour.  The tour allows for the state chamber to hear from businesses of all types and sizes around the state on the issues they are facing that need to be addressed. The feedback received from the meetings will shape the state Chamber’s 2019 Competitiveness Agenda and set the Chamber’s priorities for the 2019 legislative session.

“The annual Grassroots Tour is key to setting the business communities agenda for the upcoming year.  We get to hear from a broad and diverse group of business leaders from all regions of the state,” said Ted Pitts, President and CEO of the S.C. Chamber of Commerce. “There is no stronger advocate for the state’s business community than our local and regional chamber partners.  Together we are working to make South Carolina the best place in the nation to live, work and do business.”
