NDIA's 50 chapters--many located near major military commands, corporate business areas, research centers and defense agencies--focus on educating their communities on current and local issues relating to our national security and industrial base. Each member may participate in chapter activities to gain first-hand knowledge of the needs and requirements of defense-related companies, attend briefings and tours hosted by senior military commanders, and strengthen local relationships among government and industry representatives. These activities range from informal breakfasts to black-tie dinners, from ad-hoc meetings to community USO benefits and scholarship fundraising events.

CENTRAL FLORIDA CHAPTER (ORLANDO AND MELBOURNE, FLA.)
Chapter Board Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month.
The Central Florida Chapter membership is 425 and going strong for 2003. The geographical center for our members is the Central Florida Research Park, which is the home of the National Center for Simulation. The park is also the home of the U.S. Army Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Command (STRI-COM), Naval Air Warfare Center -Training Systems Division (NAWC-TSD) and the Air Force Agency for Modeling and Simulation (AFAMS), as well the University of Central Florida's Institute for Simulation and Training (IST). The industry base that supports these "high-tech" organizations is large and diversified and made up of large, mid-size, and small, "disadvantaged" businesses. Our member companies range from the giants--Lockheed Martin, TRW, L3 COM, Boeing, and Raytheon--to small, one-person companies. In addition to modeling, simulation and training, member companies are active participants in the areas of electronics, weapon systems, information and communications systems design, development and production. Chapter members also include a significant number of engineering, logistics and program support services companies.
During 2003, the Central Florida Chapter will continue to sponsor the Training and Simulation Industry Luncheons each month that are co-sponsored by a different member from our local industry. The chapter will continue its role as the sponsor for an Armed Forces Day (AFD) celebration. Special chapter events will include the presentation of academic scholarships to deserving ROTC and JROTC cadets from the University of Central Florida and central Florida high schools and the introduction of past, present and future veterans.
The chapter sponsors several benefit golf tournaments during the year for NDIA/NTSA, such as I/ITSEC, APBI and the Training and Testing Symposium.
