Please join us as we kick off 2018 with an overview of the Regional Development Forecast from the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce. Since 2010, the Tri-County region has accounted for nearly 40% of the overall jobs growth in South Carolina. Fueled in large part by a growing and robust manufacturing sector, the Tri-County has developed into a diversified powerhouse of jobs growth. This presentation will review many of the trends from the last five years and discuss strategies the Chamber has deployed to prepare our schools and workforce systems for the next ten years. Adrian will highlight the importance of regional collaboration, investment in our talent pipeline and specific sector based programs aimed at enhancing our workforce pipeline.
