The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce is a large regional chamber with approximately 1,600 member organizations representing 160,000 professionals. We serve as the collective voice of the tri-county business community, and a catalyst for regional economic advancement and member success.
During our long history the Chamber has been deeply involved in Talent and Workforce Development. Keeping with our goal of advancing the Charleston Metro region, the Chamber works with the local public school districts, area college and universities and local employers to help understand the types of skills employers are seeing and help local educators understand and respond to employer needs. Through the Center for Business Research we have developed the Talent Demand Study, updated every 2 years, The Common Skills in High Demand report and are developing employer-validated Career Pathways for the region.
We are pleased to be partners with the Lowcountry Education Consortium in the development of an effective, accurate regional assessment of student college and career readiness.
