Military Affairs Committee
MAC appreciates service men and women
The Chamber’s Military Affairs Committee (MAC) is committed to strengthening relationships between the local business community and military personnel and their families – partnerships that are mutually beneficial.
“Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point and Fleet Readiness Center East have an enormous economic impact on our local economy,” says MAC Chair Lori Tulloch, of Sound Bank. “The Marine Corps estimates that Cherry Point brings over $2.2 billion a year into the region.”
The Cherry Point facilities combine to rank as the area’s major employer, providing thousands of jobs to Carteret County residents. Carteret County also is home to Coast Guard Sector Field Office Fort Macon and an Army Reserve unit in Morehead City.
“The MAC specializes in showing our active duty and retired military families how much we appreciate having them as our neighbors,” Tulloch adds.
The MAC’s annual program of work is supported by Chamber members who make financial contributions to the MAC as Star Sponsors. To inquire, contact Anna Smith, Manager, Chamber Programming, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 252-726-6350.
