The Chamber is your Advocate
As the voice of business in the Charleston metro region, the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce is committed to keeping our region competitive and improving the business climate.
One of the best ways we can achieve this goal is through the legislative process. The Chamber works on behalf of our members to advocate policies and legislation that contributes to the growth and prosperity of our region.
What We Stand For
Each year the Chamber identifies top legislative priorities that we will pursue on a local, state and federal level. To see the Chamber’s current positions, view the complete 2016 Legislative Agenda and Guiding Principles.
Our legislative agenda is developed by the Business Advocacy Committee who gathers information through our entire membership through member surveys, a committee system, continual dialogue with elected officials and participation in various coalitions and alliances.
Business Advocacy has subcommittees focused on transportation and infrastructure, environmental regulation, development regulation and education and talent development that help guide the Chamber’s advocacy efforts.
