EPIC is a division of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, one that targets employees ages 22-40 who want to become more involved in the Chamber, meet new people and develop their leadership skills. EPIC’s mission is to engage, develop and celebrate emerging leaders through professional growth opportunities and social interactions.

This mission is accomplished through three types of events: program events, professional development luncheons and social mixers. EPIC also provides opportunities to serve on committees such as Membership & Marketing, Community Involvement and Education & Events to give back and grow your skills.
