The traditional method is by personal check or cash to the secretary or treasurer providing you have included a membership form. Renewal forms are included with the Chapter Newsletter beginning in November and continuing into the new year. As of January 2014 MOAA National made available a new online membership dues collection tool to help assist with new chapter members joins and renewals. Go to the MOAA.org web site to access the Online Renewal Tool.

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.
