The membership of the Chapter is composed of men and women who are serving and have served on active duty as commissioned or warrant officers in a U.S. uniformed service (i.e., Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Public Health Service) and the Reserve and National Guard, and other components of these services as well as surviving spouses of any deceased individuals who would, if living, be eligible for membership. It is desired that applicants be members of National MOAA or willing to join. Chapter dues are $25.00 annually for regular members; auxiliary members (surviving spouses) pay $10.00 annual dues. For additional information regarding membership classes please see Article 1, Section 2 of Chapter By-Laws at Documents Tab of Home Screen.
Chapter meetings all start with a social time to mingle and "schmooze" with fellow officers, spouses, active duty personnel and guests. Following the social time a business meeting is conducted to discuss chapter business and future activities. Meals are eaten following the business meeting and then the program speaker is introduced. Three programs are held during the year that do not have speakers. In October we celebrate Oktoberfest with German food and German music. During our December meeting we celebrate Christmas with a meal and special music program featuring Christmas Carols. Once a year a social event is planned so that we can meet with members of our Satellite Chapter in Davidson, NC, just north of Charlotte.
