Charleston, South Carolina Metro Chamber of Commerce chief advancement officer Mary Graham has been named to the U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff’s civic leader program, which brings together community leaders from throughout the nation to provide input on public opinion about the Air Force and Air Force issues.
“Ms. Graham’s selection to the chief of staff’s civic leader program is tremendous and represents her commitment and dedication to Joint Base Charleston and to the Air Force,” Col. Robert Lyman, Joint Base Charleston commander, said. “Her knowledge of Air Force and Department of Defense issues is extraordinary because of her more than 14 year relationship with the military at the local, state and federal levels.”
From 2003-04, Graham served as an honorary commander at Joint Base Charleston, and was an air mobility command civic leader at the base from 2010-14. She went on to attend the Air Force War College's National Security Forum in 2005.
Since 2001, Graham has served as the key staff contact at the chamber for all military issues. She is also a member of the executive committee of the South Carolina Military Base Task Force, which works to support the state's four military communities.
