Winthrop Region SBDC Director, Larry Stevens, is on his way to Columbia today to participate in York County Day, and be the eyes and ears of our SBDC's small business clients.
The afternoon program will include a variety of speakers, including members of the York County Legislative Delegation. This event allows local business leaders the opportunity to learn more about current issues affecting business in York County and the state.
The event culminates with the traditional legislative reception at 6 p.m. honoring all members of the South Carolina General Assembly. Constitutional officers also have been invited to attend.
One of the objectives of this event is to formally present the Council of Chambers’ Legislative Agenda for 2012. The York County Regional Chamber along with the Greater Clover, Greater York, Lake Wylie chambers, makes up the Council of Chambers of Commerce.
For more than 20 years, the business community through the chambers have come together to speak as one to state legislators on key legislative issues facing York County . All four chambers work closely together to review and analyze pending legislation that is likely to come before the General Assembly.
