Why Join a MOAA Chapter

Here are seven good reasons for any officer—active duty, Guard, Reserve, former, or retired, or their surviving spouse—to join a MOAA chapter today.  (Reference the MOAA website under Council & Chapters, Chapter Recruiting)

1. 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.
 
2. 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.
 
3. 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.
 
4. Networking with fellow officers
 
Chapters include second career members in the work force and retired service members who have contacts in their communities that can be valuable to transitioning officers.
 
5. Stay informed
 
Chapter newsletters, websites, and meetings provide you the latest information on local, state, and national issues and changes to military benefits.
 
6. 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 as exempting military retired pay from state income tax or increasing funding for state-run VA programs.
 
7. 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.
