The Advocates: 2023 Champions of Business
We hope everyone had a great July 4th weekend! I am pleased to announce our 2023 Champions of Business. “Champion of Business” is a recognition given to our state legislators in the Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester delegations that voted 75% or more with the Chamber’s Legislative Agenda.

The Chamber’s advocacy work would not be possible without business minded legislators in Columbia. A sincere thank you to our 26 Champions of Business that continue to keep the business community front of mind.
