In May of 2012, the Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors was presented with the challenge of replacing the position of Chamber president. We were excited to offer Brian Tucker, who was serving as Chamber president in North Augusta, the position. He graciously accepted our offer and relocated knowing there was a tough road ahead.
Brian was tasked with three points of focus. 1 -- Get a handle on the financial status of the Chamber, 2 -– Position the Chamber to be a strong advocate for economic development for Georgetown County and 3 -- Improve member relationships.
Within a year’s time, Brian has managed to fulfill all three requests. The Chamber is financially stable; the chamber’s priority is advocating economic development activities at a small business and large business level; and he has increased the number of membership outreach programs. In addition, Brian has been able to build relationships and open communication that has been much needed in our community.
We are very proud to have him represent not only the Chamber of Commerce but to represent Georgetown County. Along with the rest of the board, I want to thank Brian for a job well done and an amazing first year serving our county.
The Chamber of Commerce’s goal is to serve small and large business in an effort to improve the business experience for everyone. Because of Brian’s leadership we are able to do that more effectively. The Board and Brian continue to raise the bar and we look forward to much more progress.
Chairman, Georgetown County Chamber of Commerce
