To the team behind Island Vibes, thank you for being integral to our city’s narrative. And to our ever-growing membership: your unwavering support and active participation have propelled us beyond our aspirations. Through collective effort, we can proudly say that Isle of Palms is the premier place to live, work and play. Warm regards, Ryan Buckhannon President, IOP Chamber of Commerce Chamber Notes: ‘A rising tide lifts all ships’ By Ryan Buckhannon President, IOP Chamber of Commerce Greetings, fellow Islanders! Few moments genuinely encapsulate the spirit of a community and the arrival and embrace of Island Vibes is one of those instances. Since this vibrant local paper surfaced, the Isle of Palms has openly wrapped its arms around it. Our gratitude runs deep. Island Vibes is not just any paper; its unique reach extends to all the welcome centers across South Carolina. As we transition into our “off-season,” it’s comforting to know that Island Vibes is strategically placed to guide potential visitors to our local small businesses, helping to bolster them during quieter times. We’re continually exploring avenues to uplift our chamber member businesses and, in doing so, every business on our island because the chamber has always believed in the mantra, “A rising tide lifts all ships.” Keeping our members informed about the ongoing trends in the community and the neighboring areas is a priority. To achieve this, we are committed to providing our members and the community with accurate information about how these trends could influence local businesses or property rights. With the holiday season on the horizon, the energy in the chamber is palpable. Events are in the works and businesses are getting ready to shine. For those who wish to stay in the loop for events and happenings, follow our social media channels @DiscoverIOP and @IOPChamber. 10 BUSINESS “Very knowledgeable, responsive and honest.
