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 Military Affairs Committee had its beginning in September of 1967. The history of the Rotary Club of Homestead shows that a similar, informal community committee functioned in 1955 with the purpose of “smoothing relations between the newly activated Homestead Air Force Base and Homestead and other Redland District communities.” It was called the Civilian-Military Liaison Committee.
