    The South Shore Chamber of Commerce is committed to supporting member business development by offering quality education programs that are relevant, timely, and cost effective.

    The SSCC Business Education Series provides Chamber members with opportunities for practical, up-to-date informational content and training on topics of interests to business leaders, owners, employers and employees of all size companies. The Series provides member presenters, who are Subject Matter Experts in the topics, the opportunity to make connections with other members and bring awareness to their business.   
    The SSCC Education Coordination Team manages the planning and delivery of educational programming in coordination with Chamber staff, committees, groups and teams. Categories and topics cover a range of business interests for both for-profit and non-profit organizations. The Team is currently holding its an annual Call for Proposals inviting SSCC members the opportunity to submit business education proposals. See info below:
