The Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee is at the heart of the organization’s mission… to be the leading – and most effective — advocate for pro-business and quality of life issues in McDuffie County. With that in mind, your Chamber and volunteers work year-round to ensure that our city, county, state and federal representatives are aware of the issues which affect the McDuffie County business community, and that they are actively engaged in our efforts to make our area an even better place to live, work and do business. Locally, governmental issues are monitored by the Chamber’s Economic Development/Government Affairs Committee which meets monthly to consider issues pertinent to its area of interest, and makes recommendations to the Thomson-McDuffie Chamber Board of Directors on issues that require action and/or advocacy.
Chamber staff and volunteer leaders maintain close working relationships with members as well as the leadership of city and county departments. Our Government Affairs Committee works diligently to bridge the communication gap between local government and area businesses. more
