Ten at the Top 2020 Year in Review
There is no doubt that 2020 is a year on which history books will be written for generations to come.

Like all other businesses, local governments and non-profits, Ten at the Top was forced to make multiple pivots throughout 2020. Though our tools of choice were a bit different than in previous years, in 2020 TATT continued to focus on being a convener and connector across the Upstate region on issues that impact economic vitality and quality of life for the 1.5 million residents within our 10-county Upstate region.

We are pleased to be able to share with you our 2020 Year in Review . In the pages, you will see details on many of the initiatives and activities conducted through Ten at the Top in 2020.

Though TATT faced many of the same challenges as other organizations in 2020, thanks to the dedication and support of our staff, board members, volunteers and funding partners, we were able to maintain and expand our activities supporting the needs and efforts of businesses, non-profits and local communities across the region.

As we enter 2021, Ten at the Top remains committed to our role of helping the Upstate navigate the challenges associated with the ongoing pandemic and economic crisis by serving as a convener and connector of people, information and resources.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, we want to thank you for your involvement and support of Ten at the Top and hope you will continue to be engaged in 2021.

Because it is when we work together that we can the ensure that the Upstate remains a leading place to live, learn, do business and raise a family for generations to come.

Best Wishes,

Terence Roberts, 2020-2021 Chairman, Ten at the Top Board of Directors
