Each year the Seattle Metro Chamber leads a delegation of government, business, and civic leaders to a prominent U.S. city to offer delegates access to peers and local innovators making their mark on both the national and global stage.


Why Charleston?

  • Charleston has played a complex and significant role in our nation’s history and has evolved into a city of collaboration, long-term planning, resilience, and strong, consistent leadership.
  • Charleston has a fast-growing economy and was ranked 16th in the Milken Institutes’ 2018 Best-Performing Cities report.
  • The Charleston region is seeing strong population and income growth, and their leaders face many of the challenges that come with this, including traffic, housing affordability, and a changing city identity.

Study Mission Goals:

  • Explore innovation and economic development happening in the Charleston area.
  • Develop stronger connections among business and civic leaders in our delegation
  • Benchmark our region, explore best practices, and learn about solutions from a vibrant and growing region
