Military Affairs

For more than 50 years, the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce has been a​ valuable avenue of service and support to the military stationed in our Space Coast community. The very first efforts to support the military from the Chamber were organized and worked through a Military Committee. In 1991, the current Military Affairs Council (MAC) was formed and continues today to provide Chamber support for military members and their families.

The MAC is an all-volunteer group of Chamber investors from the local area, both civilian and military, working together to enhance the quality of life in our community, especially for the enlisted members of the services assigned to the Space Coast.

2023 MAC Chair: Alexander Hall, President, Alliance Cyber

MAC Board of Directors: Meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of each month at 10:00 AM at the Cocoa Beach Chamber offices.

MAC ​Monthly ​Meetings: Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from January through October.

MAC purposefully rotates between MAC member businesses and military facilities as to allow members to become familiar with military operations and active personnel to learn about the community and member businesses. Our monthly meetings always consist of a program that highlights the community/military organization hosting the event. These programs provide valuable insight into how many of our local organizations support the Department of Defense and include mission briefings on how our local military protects our way of life. Monthly ​meetings foster a better relationship between our local military units and our Chamber/MAC members.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for all on-base meeting for just $150.00. Contact Cheryl Clark at to secure your sponsorship.

Please RSVP for the meetings by contacting Cory Skeates, VP of Community Development, at (321) 452-4390 or
