SC Chamber Releases 2018 ASCEND

Annual Publication Highlights Accomplishments, Strength of SC Business Community

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The South Carolina Chamber of Commerce is excited to release its annual publication, ASCEND Magazine. ASCEND, the premiere publication of the South Carolina Chamber, showcases businesses of all sizes and addresses how South Carolina is building a stronger business climate throughout the state and across the nation.

The 2018 issue of ASCEND features our 2017 Business Leader, Public Servant, and Sgt. William Jasper Freedom award winners, a moving piece from SC PRT on South Carolina’s resilience following recent storms, Grant Thornton’s SC 100 list, and firsthand accounts from former Business Week students on the impact the program has had on their lives.

We are proud of the business community’s progress in 2017, and we look forward to continuing our work in 2018 to make South Carolina the best place to live, work, and do business.
