considering joining your local MOAA chapter?
Are you a chapter member or leader seeking to explain the
chapter system to a potential new member? Either way, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
informed. Chapter newsletters, websites, and meetings provide you the
latest information on local, state, and national issues and changes to
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.
with a purpose. Many chapter members miss the camaraderie and core
values of military service and want to develop close and lasting
friendships with other members with similar backgrounds and interests.
If you are or were a federally uniformed officer (USA, USMC, USN, USAF, USCG, USPHS, & NOAA), you are invited to join the Sun City Center Chapter. Chapter dues are $20.00 annually for officers and $15.00 annually for surviving spouses.
MOAA membership is not required, but is encouraged to gain the maximum member benefit for you, your family, and your fellow members. The BASIC MOAA National membership is FREE for 2 years; digital material access only.
