Florida Suncoast Chapter

Our Members

The chapter was established in the Tampa Bay area in 1977 to accommodate "former intelligence officers". Several evolutions have occurred during the past 30 years both here and at AFIO National in Washington, D.C. The term "intelligence officers" has been expanded to include counterintelligence and security professionals. We include many members who are currently active intelligence and security professionals. With that cast of characters, our Florida Suncoast AFIO roster now includes over 90 intelligence and security professionals. Members travel from as far as Punta Gorda to the south, Ocala to the north, and Lakeland to the east. Membership includes all five armed services, FBI, DIA, NSA, US State Department, Florida law enforcement agencies and the CIA.
