Military Affairs Committee

Military Affairs Committee

The mission of the Military Affairs Committee is to maintain and improve our community’s relationship with Seymour Johnson Air Force Base through learning about the operational needs of the base, advocating for policy, procedures and infrastructure, fostering an environment which will promote the importance of SJAFB to our nation’s security and endeavoring to ensure the long term viability of SJAFB in the face of reductions mandated within the US Department of Defense.

The Committee is composed of approximately 150 Chamber members. Members are committed to serving as the primary civilian liaison/counterpart between Seymour Johnson and the local community, the State of NC and the Federal Government.
