Our Mission is to strengthen and promote business in the Havelock region to facilitate a robust economic and community environment.
Our Vision is to be Havelock’s voice for business and community success.
The purpose of the Havelock Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee (MAC) is to maintain and enhance the relationship between the military-civilian communities such that the MCAS Cherry Point population is reassured that their paramount contribution to the area economic, political, cultural, and social well-being is recognized. To accomplish this purpose, the MAC serves as a vital, informal communication link among and between MCAS Cherry Point, the Chamber of Commerce, the Havelock Board of Commissioners, the Craven County Commissioners, and state and federal legislators.
The MAC sponsorship of many activities such as: The MAC Military Family of the Quarter, where active duty military families are recognized for their selfless service to our country and community involvement. The MAC also provides meals for Marines and Sailors at numerous times throughout the year, again in recognition and thanks for their dedicated service. The Havelock MAC can also be seen participating in many parades throughout the year to promote awareness of the military contributions in our surrounding communities.
Membership in the MAC is open to all Chamber of Commerce members and is comprised in large part of retired military service members. From former Marine Corps Aviators to Navy Corpsman, the MAC has a profound understanding and appreciation for the countless selfless service that our men and women in uniform provide. Although prior military service is not a requirement and all are welcomed to participate.
