The SDFM Yankee Chapter includes 135 members headquartered at Hanscom Air Force Base, MA. Major Commands in the area include: Hanscom AFB (Air Force Materiel Command, 66th Comptroller Squadron); Joint Base Cape Cod (102nd Intel Wing, Space Operations Command); Massachusetts National Guard; Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (Naval Sea Systems Command); DEVCOM Soldier Center (United States Army Futures Command); Camp Keyes Maine National Guard; and Naval Station Newport (Naval Undersea Warfare Center).

The Yankee Chapter recently celebrated the arrival of summer last month at the Hansom Summer Bash & BBQ with a luau-themed booth and stays active in the local Hanscom AFB community.

The Chapter was well-represented at the 2023 National PDI in St. Louis, MO where they won the Five-Star Recognition and Community Service Excellence, and Communications awards. Co-Chair of Programs and Events Sarah Flaherty, CDFM won a SDFM Jubilee Award for her exemplary service to defense FM and SDFM.

“Although we’re a small unit, the Yankee Chapter is a very proud contingent of SDFM with a great history of helping our members succeed. This is evident in our chapter awards (Five Star Recognition and Community Service Excellence) for several consecutive years now. Our member base is comprised predominantly of comptrollers supporting acquisition programs at Hanscom AFB, however we also have members serving other missions in the larger New England region. This includes, but certainly not limited to, geographically separated bases reporting to Hanscom, members from sister services (Army, Navy, Space Force, National Guard), and members from private industry in the local area.” – Mike Ciampa, CDFM, Chapter President, for the 75th Anniversary Jubilee Commission.
