    Established in January 1978, the Chamber’s Military Affairs Committee (MAC) is composed of 60+ Chamber members who extend their friendship, support, and expertise to strengthen the relationship between active duty military members, their missions, and the community.

    MAC members pay annual dues over and above their regular Chamber membership dues.  MAC Member dues support the monthly meeting catering costs along with the MAC’s many activities which include participation in the quarterly and annual outstanding Airmen awards at Eglin AFB and Hurlburt Field, Wing Level Picnics at Eglin and Hurlburt Field, and numerous requests made for funding support by various military and supporting organizations. 

    The Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee has developed a well-earned outstanding reputation in the local Military Community as one of the leading military personnel support organizations within a chamber of commerce.  

    If you'd like more information about how to join the Military Affairs Committee, please contact Jasmina Jeddari at the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce, 850-244-8191.
