The Military Affairs Council is led by appointed leadership that is well connected to and has a good understanding of the military community in the South Florida region. The council may include a larger group of selected individuals which only meet when critical matters arise for the Greater Miami Chamber to vet or take a position on. In such cases, the selected individuals come together to react, consult or deliberate. Past issues the Chamber has taken leadership on include advocating for reduction of service-member upfront rent, toll costs and HOA background check waiting period. The Council Chair serves as a member of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
