Serving the Needs of our Space Coast Florida Community

“The Florida Space Coast is a unique area with several rapidly expanding national defense industries and a very prevalent military presence. By forming a Space Coast Chapter, it will provide networking and professional development opportunities to promote the role of women in national defense and security, to support military service members, and to encourage partnerships within the local contractor community, defense industry and military personnel.”
