Founded In 1989
History Of The Greater Island Council
The Council was organized and chartered as the Greater Island Committee in 1989 as a non-profit, non-partisan South Carolina corporation by a small group of community leaders. The objective was to provide a means by which interested and involved citizens could stay abreast of ongoing and emerging issues affecting the quality of life within the community and, when appropriate, to develop and advocate courses of action in areas of interest to the community. The founders believed this could be best accomplished by organizing a group of civic-minded leaders with diversified backgrounds.
