The Small Business Advisory Committee was created in 2020 to identify items that make it easier for small business to start and prosper in our community. Small businesses make up a large part of the Chamber’s shareholders, therefore a specific committee for their interest is important. They serve as an advocacy group for small business issues and present topics to the Board of Directors for consideration, develop and initiate educational programs such as our Learn Local events, and meet regularly to identify issues that are recognized by our chamber members.

The SBA is currently getting ready for CWC Business Leadership Development Program - set to begin January 2023. We are now accepting nominations for the inaugural Cohort, but space is limited. Please call the Chamber Office at 803-704-6504 if you are interested.

We are all about community and the ambassadors are the heart and soul of the chamber. Ambassadors volunteer their time to act as mentors for new and existing members to ensure we have a strong business community. The primary goal of our ambassador committee is to promote the chamber, make events enjoyable for everyone, and assist in recruitment and retention of members. Ambassadors attend ribbon cuttings, serve as greeters at all events and most importantly, follow up and visit with new and current members to ensure and promote engagement and connections with other members.
