37 area business leaders and elected officials have returned from a two-day InterCity Leadership Visit to Charleston, SC, organized by the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce, with numerous takeaways on how Charleston has encouraged economic development while retaining quality of place and increasing tourism.


Increasing Personal Power for Women

Often women have to walk to fine line between being effective and being perceived as a witch. At the Chamber Women's Professional Development Luncheon, keynote speaker Denise Ryan of Firestar Speaking will tell you how to stay on the right side of the line!


Business Relocation

With a positive growth forecast, a low-cost of living and the exceptional quality of life that a beach community offers, it's easy to see why corporations and industries around the country are relocating and/or opening offices in the area. As evidence, in 2005, telecommunications giant Verizon opened a new call center in Wilmington, bringing more than 1,000 new jobs to the city. After moving their headquarters here, GE-Hitachi expanded its business. Wilmington is also home to Corning, pharmaceutical contract research organization PPD, GE Aviation, and Vertex Rail Technologies, a new arrival in 2015 that will bring more than 1,000 jobs to Wilmington.
