Leadership South Carolina

Economic Development Session

Spartanburg, SC – February 17, 18, 19, 2021

Nothing is more important to our state than a thriving economy bringing more opportunities, higher paying jobs, and a better quality of life. This month we travel to Spartanburg where we look at Economic Development in our state with some of the practitioners making a difference.

We will start at 9:30 AM at The Spark Center, a unique facility that combines manufacturing, enterprise, facility start-up and education for a winning combination in economic development.

John Lummus, president of the Upstate Alliance kicks off the session, followed by Deepal Eliatamby CEO of Alliance Consulting Engineers who outline our state successes. We’ll also participate in an economic recruitment exercise to uncover state incentives. Our last day will highlight Spartanburg’s downtown resurgence and a view of the Spartanburg skyline at the new AC Hotel.

As the oldest state organization dedicated to leadership development, Leadership SC nurtures a deeper sense of service and civic engagement for the betterment of all South Carolinians.
