  • The Military Alliance Council was established in 2015 by the Charles County Chamber of Commerce to serve as a liaison between the defense and civilian communities in recognition of the important role the defense industry and the military play in the quality of life for our citizens, as well as our local economy.


    To achieve recognition for Charles County’s defense community – DoD facilities, active and retired military, and civilian personnel – as a critical national asset and valuable economic and community partner.

    “A lot of people get caught up in the fact that [service members] only handle combat situations overseas.  To me, taking care of our local community is just as important.”

    Gunnery Sgt. R. Shriver, Training Chief, CBIRF


    The Charles County Chamber of Commerce Military Alliance Council (MAC) provides community support for critical and unique Department of the Navy (DON) and Department of Defense (DOD) activities, bases and missions in Charles County, MD.
