Committees

Volunteer Applications

Our committees play a pivotal role in our Town governance to achieve our vision. We want to be the Number 1 family destination in South Carolina. Certain committees are required by state law and are sanctioned accordingly. Other committees are ad hoc and may adapt to the Town's growing and changing needs. We are proud of our committees and volunteers that have shown dedication to our Town.

Each committee has a unique role in guiding our Town into the future. They evaluate issues or potential improvements and provide recommendations to Town Council for approval of implementation. Each committee is in the process of evaluating their mission/charter for potential realignment with the Town's changing needs. They have been asked to establish goals and objectives to focus their efforts to fulfil our vision.

Due to recent resignations or expiring terms of current members, we have several openings in our advising committees. If you want to help drive our success - please consider volunteering/applying for one of the following open positions.

Check each committee's page for specific qualifications, restrictions, and expectations of each committee, and the application form.
