Thriving communities don’t just happen. Rather, they are the result of smart planning, collaboration and dedication to driving solutions.
The Chamber’s Government Relations team works tirelessly to inform the community and our members about current issues, give access to elected leaders in our community and advocate for our region’s business community - all so the collective voice of regional businesses are heard. Our team advocates at the local, state and federal levels and takes a proactive and collaborative approach to tackling our region's greatest challenges.
Our Government Relations team works hard to answer, "How does this impact me?"
Truth is, whether directly or indirectly, decisions that are made at the local, state and federal levels all have an impact on you. Each week, we send The Advocates, a weekly email that breaks down the current issues at all levels of government to help you understand the status of current bills and help you make informed decisions for your business. No political swaying here – just factual updates about what is affecting you and your business the most.

Every year is an election year in our region and the business community deserves to have access and influence on crucial decisions that impact our region for years to come. The Chamber Political Action Committee (PAC) is an essential tool to support candidates that contribute to a positive business climate for the Charleston region’s business community.
