MAC Partners coordinate with local business and community organization to foster opportunities to serve the military and their families.


MAC is a partnership. A way to leverage community strengths to better connect with our military neighbors through events, education and outreach.


MAC Partners connect with military leaders and families at all levels to enhance the strong relationship with Fort Bragg and Pope Army Air Field.

We're always looking for ways to better connect the civilian and military communities. Through socials, golf outing, picnics, sporting events, networking opportunities and attending on post events, we bridge the gap and keep our lines of communication open.

MAC Advisory Council meets quarterly at the Chamber office, located in downtown Fayetteville at 159 Maxwell Street. Partners are always welcome to attend and share ideas of how to make MAC more effective.

“For over 50 years”

Why would any business person in Fayetteville-Cumberland County not support this council? MAC has been a strong supporter of our military for well over 50 years!

Every day approximately 47,000 military personnel and 10,618 civilian employees in careers ranging from trades and labor to engineers and attorneys provide the services needed to train, sustain, and deploy the combat forces to America's Crisis Response Contingency Corps and Special Operations Forces. In the time of crisis, Fort Bragg serves as the major nexus for massive troop deployment.

Becoming a Partner with the Military Affairs Council is a tremendous opportunity for members to meet personally with leaders from Fort Bragg and Pope Army Airfield, but it also serves as a networking opportunity for our military and their families. MAC continues to participate in other programs throughout the year to provide support and assistance, such as the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) Soldier, Family and Command Support Association. MAC assisted in the fundraising for the Wall of Heroes at the United States Army Special Operations Command's Memorial Plaza on Fort Bragg.
