We can’t do our work without champions in the community. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Lowcountry Local First is governed by a Board of Directors. These folks are business owners and leaders, and tirelessly spread the good word on supporting local businesses to build a strong economy. They provide valuable insight across multiple business sectors and work with staff to be the best advocates and build the best programs possible.
