Island Vibes Jan 2024

Warm regards, Ryan Buckhannon President, IOP Chamber of Commerce Chamber Notes Let’s usher 2024 with enthusiasm and unit By Ryan Buckhannon President, IOP Chamber of Commerce 10 BUSINESS As the president of the Isle of Palms Chamber of Commerce, it's my pleasure to extend a heartfelt Happy New Year to each of you in our vibrant community. The onset of 2024 brings a new year and a fresh opportunity for growth, connection and prosperity for our beloved Isle of Palms. Looking ahead, we have an exciting calendar brimming with events and initiatives. Our kickoff for the year sets the tone: the first chamber meeting is scheduled for Jan. 23 at noon at the Isle of Palms Exchange Club. This gathering isn't just a meeting; it's a beacon of inspiration featuring a distinguished guest speaker, Chad Holbrook, the head coach of the College of Charleston baseball program. Coach Holbrook's presence is a testament to our commitment to excellence and community upliftment. With over two decades of coaching, contributing to national championship teams and making significant marks in the NCAA, his experience and insights are invaluable. His extraordinary record—eight NCAA Super Regionals, six College World Series, five national championship appearances and two national championships—makes him a paragon in the NCAA coaching arena. We invite each of you to join us in welcoming coach Holbrook. His words promise to be more than just encouraging; they are set to ignite a spirit of positivity and determination, aligning perfectly with our vision for 2024. As we enter this new year, let's unite in our efforts to enhance our community's well-being and prosperity. Together, we can make the Isle of Palms a beautiful place to live and visit and a beacon of community strength and collaboration. Here's to a prosperous, fulfilling and joyful 2024!
