Advisors, Volunteers, and Partners assemble at the 3rd Annual Board of Advisors Meeting, 2019, Washington DC

Our Team

We are proud to have many experienced professionals contributing to our mission and vision through active leadership roles. All personnel involved with leading the Military Cyber Professionals Association are unpaid volunteers serving in their personal capacities.

There are two main echelons of leadership and oversight; national and chapter. The national leadership consists of a robust Board of Advisors that are seasoned senior leaders that assist the small Board of Directors. The national staff runs the daily affairs of the organization and reports to the Board of Directors. Chapter Presidents report to the Board of Directors and national staff. Chapter staffs report to their Chapter President. Note: Chapter leadership contact information is listed on the MCPA member-only intranet.
