Our Chapter was chartered by the AUSA Council of Trustees on July 1, 2006 after being a sub-chapter with the Sunshine Chapter for two years.
The Charter for the East Central Florida Coast area includes the boundaries of Daytona Beach, Brevard and Indian River Counties. SGM Vincent “Kip” Mathias (Ret), was the first President of the Space Coast Chapter after serving over two years as the Sunshine Chapter Treasurer. The Chapter started with over 400 members strong and focuses on the four AUSA tenors:
People Support – for those in the Army
Industry Liaison – in support of the Army
Public Education – about the Army
Professionalism – within the Army
