It is the vision of The South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce to be recognized as the voice of African American business community in South Carolina. Through effective relationships with business owners, industry leaders, government officials, and educational organizations, we will advance The South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce mission.

Major Achievements

Relationships built within the chamber lead to economic growth and monetary retention in the African American communities in every county in South Carolina. South Carolina begins to see the African American business community as an ally to its local government as well as to its economic and social progressive efforts that will shape its future

Strategic Purpose

It is our passion to see businesses started, economic interaction between African American owned businesses, and economic stability produced and reproduced in South Carolina. Without these elements at work, or in the works in the life of our members, our Chamber is ineffectual and our existence is not a necessity.
