The Charleston Metro Chamber has created four Local Area Chambers in order to provide members increased access as well as information on issues vital to our communities.
One of the way each of the Local Area Chambers will deliver relevant information on hot topics is through the Business in your Backyard (BIYB) series. Held once a quarter in each of the areas, BIYB provides the opportunity for members to connect with others doing business in their community while engaging in targeted topics focused on localized community and economic issues.
We know each area faces both our regional challenges along with localized, community challenges. Thus, each BIYB program has been thoughtfully planned to address and provide information pertinent to where you operate your business each day.
We are kicking off our 2017 series in March with four must attend events. Learn more about each event and attend the BIYB(s) that matter most to you.
