WMBF News’ Coverage of the 2016 Chamber Legislative Trip

This past week, a group of local business and community leaders embarked on a trip to Washington, D.C. for the Florence Chamber’s biannual visit to the Pee Dee region’s Legislative Delegation. The visit provides time to discuss
present issues and topics of concern in the area and gives leaders much-needed “face time” with those directly involved in the governmental decisions that impact our state.

During the trip, the group of 14 local leaders met with several of our area’s most influential lawmakers including Sen. Tim Scott, Sen. Lindsey Graham and Congressman Tom Rice and others.

The Legislative Trip is a fantastic opportunity for the Pee Dee business community to have face-to-face interactions with key decision-makers in Washington.

Please check out the video below to learn more about what took place on the trip courtesy of coverage from WMBF News, hear directly from those who took part in the experience and find out why it was so important when it comes to changing the way we do business in the Pee Dee.
