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 over 500 members. The chapter relies on the strong industry partnerships in sponsorships in the monthly socials and our annual golf tournament.

For the past 319th months in a row, the CFL Chapter meets at Froggers in Oviedo for a monthly social from 1630hrs-1900 hrs. Through hurricanes and yes during Covid-19, the chapter has this networking event whether there are a handful or hundreds supported by our strong industry relationship.

Time to get social!
