WHY SHOULD I JOIN A CHAPTER?

Seven Good Reasons

Make yourself heard. MOAA’s chapters provide critical grassroots support for

MOAA’s national legislative agenda. Our benefits are under attack and MOAA is

in the fight to preserve them. Chapter members let their legislators know what’s

on their minds and open doors for MOAA’s legislative team in Washington, D.C.

In these difficult times, MOAA members need to stick together and our chapters

are the best way we know to do that.

Giving back to the community. Chapter members are MOAA’s ambassadors in

their communities, supporting countless programs that make a difference in the

lives of others. These members continue their “officership” service and are giving

back in the truest sense.

Value added to chapter member lives. MOAA chapters sponsor interesting

programs and opportunities to interact with civic, political, military, and business

leaders on issues important to members.

Networking with fellow officers. Chapters include second career members in

the work force and retired servicemembers who have contacts in their

communities that can be valuable to transitioning officers.

Stay informed. Chapter newsletters, websites, and meetings provide you the

latest information on local, state, and national issues and changes to military

benefits.

Influencing state legislation. Most states have a council of chapters that unites

every MOAA chapter in the state. These councils and independent chapters in

states without a council often lobby for and pass state-level legislation that affects

military members and their families, such exempting military retired pay from state

income tax or increasing funding for state-run VA programs.

Camaraderie with a purpose. MOAA chapters unite active duty, former, and

retired officers from every branch of service, including National Guard and

Reserve, as well as surviving spouses. These centers of camaraderie not only

give you a chance to connect with other members with similar backgrounds and

interest, but to also develop close and lasting friendships.
