The Upstate Chamber Coalition speaks for the Upstate business community with a strong, unified voice. Our mission is to make the Upstate the absolute best place to do business in the world.

UCC Advocacy Day is your opportunity to help us accomplish this mission.

Join us for our third annual UCC Advocacy Day at the Statehouse, presented by GSP International Airport, as we advocate for items on our 2017 Legislative Agenda, and thank our pro-business, Upstate legislators. Meet with legislators one-on-one, visit the House and Senate chambers, and hear from key experts on issues facing the General Assembly this session like workforce development, pension reform, and transportation funding. Attorney General Alan Wilson and State Treasurer Curtis Loftis are scheduled to address our group. We’ll close the day out with a Legislative Reception with legislators from all eight of our Upstate Counties.

Charter-bus transportation from the Greenville Chamber to and from the Statehouse will be provided and is open to all coalition chamber members. Space on the charter bus is limited, so please be sure to register early! 

Pricing:
$50 with Charter bus transportation
$25 without transportation provided

Come join us and ensure the voice of business is heard at the Statehouse!
