May 26, 2021 - Rotary Recap. Jacki Renegar, Director of Research and Business Intelligence for the Charleston Regional Development Alliance (CRDA), was the guest speaker at our weekly breakfast meeting held virtually. CRDA was founded in 1995 after the closure of the Navy base in order to attract new businesses to the Charleston Region. Jacki is an expert in The Charleston economy and presents business data to business leaders who might be considering locating to the area. 2019 was a stellar year, but all indications is that a recovery is here and Charleston is doing well comparatively. We appreciate Chip Law’s update on our $10,000 scholarship program, George’s Duck Race update, Mary’s upcoming service project opportunities along with Greg’s information about the importance of the Rotary Foundation.
