The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce (CMCC) and Charleston Regional Development Alliance (CRDA) have partnered to develop One Region -- a planning program that will give birth to a strategy through which the tri-county region of Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester will be able to compete in the global market.
The strategy encompasses the areas of talent, infrastructure and the unique assets of each county.
To assist them in developing the plan, the CMCC and CRDA have retained the services of Avalanche Consulting and McCallum Sweeney Consulting. The planning process is expected to take six months, after which comprehensive competitive assessment, identification of target industry clusters and competencies and strategic action plan reports will be rendered.
The first step in the process, an analysis of the region's economy, is already underway. To participate in the analysis, take the online survey at www.OneRegionStrategy.com.
An 80-member advisory board includes co-chairs Ken Seeger, president of WestRock, and Jeff Spicer, senior vice president at Wells Fargo.
