Why Join a Local Chapter
Make yourself heard.CCMOAA provides critical grassroots support for MOAA’s national legislative agenda. Veterans, Service Member's and their families 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 North Carolina's DownEast communities, supporting countless programs that make a difference in the lives of others. Our members continue their “officership” service and are giving back in the truest sense.
Value added to chapter member's lives. CCMOAA sponsors interesting programs and opportunities to interact with civic, political, military, and business leaders on issues important to members.
Networking with fellow officers. CCMOAA includes both second career members in the work force and retired service-members who have contacts in our local communities and 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 North Carolina State legislation. North Carolina's Council of Chapters unites every MOAA chapter in the state. Our council and independent chapters 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. CCMOAA unites 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.
