An Association dedicated to promoting the improvement of

Among its members, and to fostering a positive standing

within the local community.

     NCMA Lakehurst is proud to be the only NAVAIR NCMA Chapter in the National Organization. As part of Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Act, NAVAIR Lakehurst has become part of Joint Base McGuire, Dix and Lakehurst (JB MDL) as of 1 October 2009.

     The Lakehurst portion of JB MDL is the world's only provider of full spectrum support for aircraft launch, recovery and support equipment systems for Naval Aviation Forces at sea and Marine Corps Expeditionary Aviation Forces ashore. NAVAIR provides these services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, both from the home base in Lakehurst as well as aboard Navy deployed ships and Marine Expeditionary Forces. From system development, prototyping, testing, production, and in-service engineering, the base provides the Navy and Marine Corps aviation forces with all their Aircraft Platform Interface needs.

     As is the NCMA National organization, the Joint Base at Lakehurst NCMA Chapter is a nonprofit organization consisting of naval civilians in leadership positions.  This Chapter exists to provide support to command initiatives, the community, and our deployed Sailors and Marines.  There are currently over 150 Lakehurst employees ranging from grades GS-13 through the SES level belonging to the NCMA.  It is a growing organization with strong support from NAVAIR leadership.

2018NCMAYear     NCMA meetings are held during a luncheon on the third Wednesday of every month.  During these luncheons, speakers talk about topics that directly affect naval aviation.  These speakers have included high level leadership in NAVAIR such as RDML Darrah, Community leaders such as Congressman MacArthur, as well as others influential leaders at the Joint Base.

     The NCMA chapter at Lakehurst has been honored with the prestigious NCMA Chapter of the year award in both 2012, 2013 & 2018.  This award is presented every year at the National Conference and is based on based on the success of the chapter over the year.  This honor was received partially to an unprecedented increase in membership (over 50%) as well as to several new NCMA programs initiated at Lakehurst.  These new programs include:


1)      Organizing an effort with the local schools to collect items and then ship Care packages to our troops overseas.
2)      Establish a Joint Base at Lakehurst Newsletter.
3)      Organizing an NCMA Golf Tournament as a fund raiser for the Wounded Warriors Project
4)      Sponsoring a SEAPERCH competion in New Jersey.
