Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union and the Columbia Chamber are pleased to announce five businesses that have been selected to take part in the 2024 Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union Small Business Champion Program.

“The Columbia Chamber is excited to partner with Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union to continue the Small Business Champion Program, now in its second year. This initiative not only gives participants full access to all Chamber programs and events, but also provides opportunities to help them grow,” said Carl Blackstone, President and CEO of the Columbia Chamber.

The Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union Small Business Champion Program covers a full year of Partnership dues with the Chamber, pairs each recipient with a Palmetto Citizens Federal Credit Union mentor, and assigns a Chamber Diplomat to help each small business navigate all of the opportunities available to them through their membership.

“Palmetto Citizens is extremely proud to support the Small Business Champion Program and highlight some of the great businesses here in the Midlands," said Emilie Lewis, Director of Community Engagement at Palmetto Citizens. "We'd like to congratulate each of this year's winners and are thrilled for the chance to work with them to help their businesses continue to thrive." 

To qualify for the program, businesses must be based in the Midlands, open for two or more years and are not current Chamber Partners.
