What a great weekend in the Lowcountry. Was that August? It sure didn’t feel like August. Perfect temperatures without the late summer humidity. Hopefully it’s a sign of the season ahead of us.
Fall is one of the busiest times of the year for your chamber, and this year is no exception:
Building your business this Fall:
September 11th, 10:00-11:00 a.m., Palmetto Electric Cooperative, Hardeeville. SC Chamber’s Grassroots Meeting – your chance to let our SC legislators in Columbia know what matters to the Lowcountry.

Get Involved this Fall:
We have a very active group of members involved in a number of areas. Our Government Affairs Committee, Business Education Partnership Committee and our Bluffton Regional Business Council will all be meeting this fall.
We’ve always been involved and monitored what’s happening in government at the local, state and federal level. The Grassroots Meeting happening in September, in partnership with the state chamber is a great way to let your voice be heard.
These are just a few examples of the ways your chamber is at work for you. Why do we do it all? Because you said so. You’ve told us time and time again in our membership surveys, at events and in numerous conversations that you want to interact with your colleagues and potential customers in the Lowcountry. That’s exactly what our chamber networking events are designed to do – build your business via relationships that offer exposure and opportunities for your organization.
Let us know how we’re doing. We get our best ideas from you – our members. If you have a suggestion on how we can enhance our efforts, or an idea worth sharing, let us know.
Have a great week!
