San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC) was founded in 2004 as a 501 (c) 6 non-profit organization with a mission to support and promote the mutual business and other interests of the military, their quality of life, and the defense community in the San Diego area. Since then, SDMAC has become increasingly prominent in advancing the partnership and communication between the military, elected and appointed officials, and the business community while simultaneously working to enhance recognition of the military's many economic and social contributions to the San Diego area.

As issues develop where military, commercial, and political interests intersect SDMAC will continue to be a champion for better communication, cooperation, partnership, and resolution in the San Diego region. SDMAC has been in the forefront of recent and current issues in the San Diego community such as Base Realignment and Closure, Regional Airport Site Selection, and Tenth Avenue Marine Terminal Mixed Use to name just a few.

Our signature event is the SDMAC monthly breakfast, which takes place on the third Wednesday of every month and features prominent speakers, civilian and military, from the Department of Defense, the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. This provides not only the opportunity to hear firsthand from the knowledgeable leadership, but also an opportunity to meet and network with 400+ military and civilian business leaders of the local community.
