Leadership

SDMAC was founded out of the need to establish an organization that has, as its primary function, the capability and flexibility to facilitate the free exchange of information between and among the military, the local political establishment, and the business community. The six original founders, Larry Blumberg, Frank Hewitt, Nancy Dix, Pete Hedley, Mike Woiwode, and Tom Caughlan, came from a variety of backgrounds: several had been members of the San Diego Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs and Advisory Committee, the business community, legal profession, and others, retired Navy and Marine Corps officers. Original corporate charter members likewise include those from the local business, commercial, defense, and industrial community.
