Welcome Masters Guests to McDuffie County
Message from your Chamber Chairman
Andy Knox, Jr
Chairman of the Board of Directors

We are thankful for our chamber members' involvement in our programs and events. We would like to send a very special "Thank You" to Mychele Rhodes, Superintendent of McDuffie County Schools, and the rest of her team for their engagement in the Chamber's Workforce Development initiative.  Mychele and her team visited with our local industry leaders in February.  In March, they had twelve local business leaders participate in Principal for a Day. 

With a positive first quarter behind us, the Chamber is looking forward to continuing the successful momentum.  

You can order a gift from Faith, Hope and Love for your Administrative Professionals. The gifts below are $10.99 + tax. This is a great way to say thanks for their dedication and service.
