MPCC Finds a Home
By Ross Norton, Charleston Regional Business Journal
The Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce has found a place to call home at 534 Johnnie Dodds Blvd.
With a 2,000-square-foot facility and partnership with Pinnacle Financial Partners, the location is designed to provide space for growing staff and have a physical presence in the community, according to a news release. The space will be used to host meetings with members, board meetings, committee meetings and some of their events such as new-member coffees. Once signage and staff are in place, the offices will be open to the public.
“The Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce has been aspiring to have a physical location in Mount Pleasant for years,” MPCC President Jennifer Maxwell said in the news release. “It is very exciting that we were able to partner with Pinnacle Bank on a lease to make this a reality. This is crucial as part of our plan to continue to grow and support the businesses and community east of the Cooper.”
The chamber’s mission is to encourage business and community success.
“The people of the Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce are incredible partners to the entire business community and share Pinnacle’s passion for improving the quality of life for everyone who lives and works here,” Karina Garrison, office leader at Pinnacle Financial Partners and chamber secretary, said in the release. “That made this a very easy decision. The chamber is a major driver of our community’s economic wins and has proven itself to be committed to business and community success east of the Cooper. We just feel fortunate to get to play a part in their future.”
A grand opening and ribbon cutting with the town of Mount Pleasant is planned for later.
