IGNITEGreer Merges with Greenville Chamber PULSE

(GREER, SC)- The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that IGNITEGreer, the chamber’s young professional group, is merging with PULSE, the young professional organization for the Greenville Chamber of Commerce.

 “Both the Greater Greer and Greenville chambers are committed to recruiting and retaining young talent. As baby boomers begin to depart from the workforce, it is critical to have a strong base of young professionals ready to fill part of that void and meet the workforce needs of a growing Upstate economy,” said Allen C. Smith, president and chief executive officer of the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce.

PULSE membership includes free admission to monthly social and leadership events along with the bi-weekly e-newsletter to keep members up to date on all PULSE happenings. In addition, it offers opportunities to participate in PULSE in the Arts, PULSE Sports and the PaceSetters mentoring program. All PULSE events are exclusive to PULSE members only.

“PULSE’s goal is to foster the next generation of leadership in Greenville County,” said John Boyanoski, PULSE chair. “Greer offers so many opportunities and we are very excited about our members becoming more active in this community.”

Greer Chamber members between the ages of 22 and 39 will be eligible to join PULSE, said Smith. In addition, PULSE will hold events in Greer as well as work on ways to become more active in the Greer area.

The announcement was made during PULSE’s Annual Report Wednesday night that featured keynote speaker Richard Riley, former South Carolina governor and U.S. Secretary of Education.
