Active Connections

What: North Charleston Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors connect with every new member, creating and developing a community working together. These active connections provide resources, support, and referrals to potential customers to help everyone grow together.

Why: Your Chamber should work for you all the time. The North Charleston Chamber focuses on putting you in contact with people who can help your business with support either from their services/products or by utilizing yours.

Member Mixers

What: Successful growth is based on personal connection. That’s why our member mixers are designed to help micro business owners, or their representatives, build those connections with each other and larger companies in need of their services. By creating a fun, engaging environment conducive to creating connections, we find a way to grow as people and professionals.

Why: Connection is the key to growth, happiness, and the world. Connecting with other professionals is how we function and succeed. Our mixers give you the ability to meet decision-makers and get potential referrals, which both directly impact your bottom line.
