Team 250
Thank you for helping us advance our community.

In 1773, the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce was formed to drive commerce. While we as a Chamber, and as a community, have evolved significantly over the last 250 years, we have deep roots as the longest continually operating chamber of commerce in the nation.

Across two and a half centuries, there have been significant advancements and improvements and at the core of our work are dedicated volunteer leaders and their supporting businesses and organizations. Our history is filled with many who have been passionate about advancing the Charleston region. Today, we continue to honor and learn from our last 250 years, while proactively focusing on initiating, advocating and empowering our region to ready itself for the next 50 years of prosperity.

Legacy Piece of Artwork

In collaboration with LS3P, we have developed an exhibit to honor the Chamber’s historical impact and all the people that have been a part of it. The design, centered around the region’s longest living live oak tree – the Angel Oak, pays homage to the deep-rooted history of the Chamber and the significant role it has played in the Lowcountry’s growth. The design also speaks to the constant evolution of the community and the Chamber’s ongoing, daily mission to enhance a prosperous business environment.

The donor wall design balances the traditional tree form with abstracted branches stretching throughout the lobby with modern wood slats; the curved edges create a wave of texture as visitors look across them. Rather than leaves, the design features acrylic fins integrated within the wood slats to represent Spanish moss. These fins vary in length and tone to create a dynamic gradient of color across the branches. Each individual acrylic fin will feature a donor name. This element represents the diversity of the Chamber membership and illustrates how integral members are to the Chamber’s history and progress.
