The Military Affairs Committee is a self-governing committee of the South Dade Chamber of Commerce and is operated exclusively for the fulfillment of its mission. It has its own budget, raises its own funding and all decisions are directed by the MAC membership.
The Civilian Military Liaison Committee, functioned as the community liaison with the Air Base. The committee was established to solve problems before they occur and to “foster good understanding” between civilians of the community and personnel at the Homestead Air Force Base.
The MAC leadership is a Board of Directors. The Board consists of an Executive Committee, Committee heads and four members at large. The Executive Committee Is made up of the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Immediate Past Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and Sgt. at Arms.
The MAC has several committees to handle the planning and execution of the many MAC functions.
This support was focused on Homestead Air Force Base through 1992, and now Homestead Air Reserve Base (482d Fighter Wing) and its joint missions. These diverse missions now include not only the 482nd Fighter Wing’s F-16 mission, but the Florida Air National Guard’s sovereign air defense mission, Special Operations Command South, USCG Maritime Safety & Security Team Miami 91114, US Customs & Border Patrol, Florida Army Guard’s 50th Area Support Group, and various temporary missions assigned to the base.
