Lasting connections while driving solutions for our region


Metro Leadership Visit

The Metro Leadership Visit, a highly sought-after leadership experience, takes a delegation of 65-75 community and civic leaders to visit other cities throughout the nation to explore issues facing our region.

Strategic relationships with other business leaders are forged throughout the 2-3 day experience, providing lasting value and ROI. Exclusive access to other cities’ public and private sector leaders and organizations adds unparalleled business knowledge and insight.

The immersive experience:

  • Provides an exclusive experience to deepen bonds between dynamic regional leaders who play a significant role in shaping the Charleston region.
  • Enhances our region’s future performance by embracing actions we can import – these lessons are used to advance the Chamber’s key priorities.

Metro Leadership Visit 2022

Metro Leadership Visit is headed to the land of baked beans and Fenway Park this year – We’re going to Boston! The 2022 Metro Leadership Visit (MLV) offers an exclusive opportunity to explore Boston – a city founded around the same time as Charleston and that shares many similarities to our region. Along with hearing lessons learned and best practices, attendees will engage with fellow leaders and influencers from our region, creating and building important relationships.

Registration is now open for this year’s trip!
