South Carolina Palmetto Chapter
Our goal is provide networking and professional development opportunities to promote the role of women in national defense and security, to support military service members, and to encourage partnerships between the local contractor community and military personnel at Joint Base Charleston and the Department of Homeland Security. Charleston and surrounding areas are enjoying expanded growth. Accompanying this growth are enhanced business opportunities through increased technology integration companies moving into the region to support these opportunities.
In recognition of the Women in Defense (WID) Palmetto Chapter's Carolina State orientation, we will strive to actively promote women for key leadership and technical positions throughout this region to include: Charleston, Greenville and Columbia, as well as Fayetteville and the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill areas in North Carolina.
If you have any questions, you may contact our President at email@example.com, or our Vice President at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
If you are not familiar with our organization, and your first contact with us is online, we would be pleased to hear from you! Please let us know what your needs and questions are, and we will be more than happy to assist.
