Central Florida Chapter

CFL Chapter is located in Orlando, Florida with the focal point supporting the simulations and training industry near PEO-STRI. Located on the Research Park of the campus of the University of Central Florida, PEO STRI is an Army One Star headquarters that support the Army Simulation, Training and Instrumentation for the War Fighter. ACC Orlando is the contracting command with many retired Army personnel and civilians. In addition to Orlando, members travel from both coasts to attend the monthly socials. From Tampa to Cocoa Beach to as far south as Miami and Key West, our chapters has just under 500 members. The chapter relies on the strong industry partnerships in sponsorships in the monthly socials and our annual golf tournament. The one thing the chapter is lacking - Soldiers. STRI has three 0-6 former aviator acquisition Officers. There are no Aviation MOS enlisted Soldiers to nominate for Soldier or NCO of the year.
