About Mac Deford
Mac has always been driven by a deep-rooted commitment to helping other people. Following his high school graduation, while most of his friends prepared for college, Mac boldly decided to forgo his college acceptances and instead enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard on active duty. After his military service, he attended The Citadel and the Charleston School of Law.
Mac's experience working as an attorney for two coastal communities in the 1st Congressional District — Mount Pleasant and most recently the town of Hilton Head Island — gives him a unique understanding of the issues facing Congressional District One. Mac tirelessly endeavored to enhance the lives of Lowcountry residents and make their communities better places to live and work. For more information, check out his campaign website.
CALENDAR OF UPCOMING EVENTS
Summer is comming and the Club is busy planning exciting speakers and events to keep you informed and energized.
We look forward to returning to in-person speaker luncheons once a month and evening meetings at the end of the month. But, we will also take advantage of Zoom calls with compelling speakers as necessary. We will continue to update the calendar as events are added.
Approximately 30 days before each event everyone on our mailing list will recieive an invitation to register. We hope you will join us as a member but it is not required for most events.
