Upstate SC Chambers Join Forces
Ten chambers of commerce from northwest South Carolina region have joined forces and pooled resources for state level advocacy. The Upstate Chamber Coalition will create and advocate for a common legislative agenda when the state legislature reconvenes in January.
"It's a collaborative world, and we need to have business leaders with a common agenda," said David Cordeau, president and CEO of the Spartanburg Chamber. "We are excited about this opportunity to partner with other chambers across the Upstate to bring a brighter future to the area."
Upstate SC isn't the only region where chambers have joined forces for advocacy. 16 chambers in Indiana have formed the Northeast Indiana Chamber Coalition (NEICC) to collaborate on state, local and federal policy advocacy efforts.
