Military Affairs Council
What Is the North Suburban Chamber Military Affairs Council?
Committed Business Partners United for Service In the mid-1980s, the North Suburban Chamber of Commerce, a business organization serving 13 communities in the Woburn area Route 128/Interstate 95 corridor created a Military Affairs Council (MAC) dedicated to fostering and preserving a crucial relationship between business, local communities and the Hanscom Air Force Base (HAFB) community.
Why Should My Business Join The Military Affairs Council? – Interaction & Information
In the nearly 20 years of its existence, the MAC has dedicated significant resources towards interaction between the business community and HAFB, as well as towards enhancing the mission of HAFB’s Life Cycle Management Center (LCMC)- a $3+ billion per year engineering, contracting and procurement Center of Excellence for the Air Force.
MAC members are in a unique position to network and interact with LCMC personnel and learn more about its mission so they can effectively contribute to LCMC’s goals. Sustaining MAC members have quarterly breakfast gatherings and other programs of industry, community leaders and HAFB leadership.These meetings provide MAC members with important technical and contracting information as well as key developments in Air Force policy and projects that can affect their business. All MAC members are invited to popular social events held at various locations in our region. These programs help maintain key relationships and friendships with HAFB personnel and other industry and community leaders.
The MAC is a community liaison to HAFB, and is working to bring our various community partners and businesses together with the personnel on base.
