Welcome to the South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce

On Sunday, June 8, 2014 @ 3:00 p.m., the Business and Job Center presented, Welcome to the South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce.

A group of African-American business and community leaders formed the South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce in 2012. Organizational goals include helping educate members about commerce and commerce-related issues; promoting sound business principles; raising awareness of existing African American-owned businesses and fostering an environment which makes it easier for African American owned businesses to succeed; and providing a support network for start-ups and aspiring African American business owners.

Guest speaker Stephen Gilchrist, Chamber Chair, discussed the ways in which the South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce serves as "an advocate for prosperity, progress, and the permeation of success within every county and community in South Carolina as it relates to African American Businesses."
