We invite you to join us for a series of Candidate Forums over the next couple months, exclusively for our chamber investors. For the months of April and May we will be combining our Legislative and Transportation committees for meet-and-greets with candidates running for local office.
Our goal is to use these meetings to give our Investors the opportunity to get to know the candidates running for S.C. Senate, S.C. House, and Greenville County Council. These meetings are also a part of our #VoteGreenville2016 initiative, a non-partisan effort to educate our community on who’s running for office, and to encourage voter turnout.
The Candidates will be spread out over a series of four meetings, giving our investors ample time to interact with the them, ask questions, and get to know their platforms. These meetings are free to attend, but please register to reserve your seat.
