Fort Jackson Commanding General Welcome Breakfast

Columbia is proudly called “The Most Military Friendly Community in America.” There are numerous programs and organizations who create great value for our military. We are home to the US Army’s largest training base at Fort Jackson, the South Carolina National Guard and McEntire Joint National Guard Base, Department of Defense Contractors, and the US Army Reserve. The combined economic impact of these military operations is in excess of $4.1 billion dollars per year. The Chamber’s work in this space includes strengthening relationships between the community and military; supporting military families; and retaining and expanding the local military footprint. This involves interacting with numerous constituents including local leaders, elected officials (city, county, state and federal), and military outreach groups. Outside of our state, the Chamber works closely with colleagues in Washington, DC to monitor military-related legislation and issues.

This is a welcome breakfast honoring the new Commanding General at Fort Jackson.

Military Affairs Group

Military Advocacy at the Columbia Chamber
Columbia is proudly called “The Most Military Friendly Community in America” as we are home to the US Army’s largest training base at Fort Jackson, the South Carolina National Guard and McEntire Joint National Guard Base, Department of Defense Contractors, and the US Army Reserve. The combined economic impact of these military operations is in excess of $4.1 billion dollars per year. The Chamber’s work in this space includes strengthening relationships between the community and military; supporting military families; and retaining and expanding the local military footprint. The involves interacting with numerous constituents including local leaders, elected officials (city, county, state and federal), and military outreach groups. Outside of our state, the Chamber works closely with colleagues in Washington, DC to monitor military-related legislation and issues.

Why Sponsor?
The economic impact of the military community in Columbia is significant with Fort Jackson alone representing $2.4 billion annually. There are over 250,000 visitors who come to Columbia each year because of the military. These visitors stay in local hotels, dine and shop at local establishments which in turn benefits the Partners of the Chamber through increased business. The benefits of sponsoring military-related activities of the Chamber are two-fold. One, sponsorship of the Military Outreach Group provides an opportunity for Chamber Partners to interact with military leaders and visitors to promote their services. Secondly, supporting the Chamber in regards to military activities allows us to deepen and strengthen the working relationship between us and the entire military presence in our area. An inherent and fundamental benefit which underlines all of the work we do for the military is the extreme gratitude and sincere thanks that our community gives to the military and their families who serve our great nation.

Midlands Youth Apprenticeship Program

What is the Midlands Youth Apprenticeship (MYA) program?
The Midlands Youth Apprenticeship (MYA) is a program designed to help create a talent pipeline for area businesses while creating a viable workplace path for students after high school. It is enhanced by a partnership with Midlands Technical College. Students involved in the Youth Apprenticeship Program take normal high school classes while simultaneously attending Midlands Technical College two to three days a week in dual enrollment classes. At the end of a two-year program, students will have earned a high school diploma, certification in a specific field from Midlands Tech, credentialing from the U.S. Department of Labor, and two years of paid work experience. The businesses who participate in this program will have created a worker who is ready on Day One to work in the specialized positions that their company requires.

Why give?
The MYA program fulfills a need expressed by businesses for skilled workers and equips a high school student with a job that can provide a solid and stable foundation upon which to build a prosperous life. MYA creates a talent pipeline for area businesses while creating a viable workplace path for students after high school. Your donation enables the Chamber to continue to enroll students in this program which in turn creates workers for the future.

All donations are tax-deductible.
