Coronado Chapter MOAA Members are more than just members. They are facilitators. They successfully influence local government. They publicize valuable information to other MOAA members and affected military personnel. They recognize outstanding young people and help others in time of need. And while doing so, they develop close and lasting friendships with others of similar backgrounds and aspirations.
Is chapter membership for you? If you want to have a greater impact on your community and the lives of those in the military yesterday, today and tomorrow you need to join our chapter. We are doers and helpers. We have for 13 consecutive years received 5-Star chapter recognition from National MOAA, and in 2019 we received 5 Star recognition for our Website and 5 Star recognition for our Newsletter “The Heliogram.”
If you’re still not sure, check us out on the web at www.coronadomoaa.org , by visiting our Facebook Page at “MOAA Coronado Chapter Sierra Vista, AZ” and/or by attending one of our Coronado Chapter meetings. Joining a chapter might be one of the best benefits you’ll derive from your membership in MOAA.
MOAA has produced positive results on Capitol Hill in recent years thanks in large part to the support of its chapter members. Improvements in Survivor Benefits (SPB) and in military health care including TRICARE for Life, active duty pay increases, and the repeal of the dual compensation law are just a few of MOAA’s recent successes.
Not only will you be enhancing MOAA’s influence on Capitol Hill, you will be kept up to date on rapidly changing military, political and legislative action that affects your life.
When it comes to changes in the military health care system or other military benefits you’ve earned, no one has more in-depth knowledge than MOAA and its chapter network. Get plugged in today!!!
Benefits of MEMBERSHIP
Chapter membership offers many benefits to enhance your personal and professional life.
As one of more than 425 chapters worldwide, and nine chapters in the State of Arizona, the Coronado Chapter provides opportunities to network and socialize with people who share your values of patriotism, honor and selflessness. Guest speakers at chapter social events often provide critical information related to local base and community issues, pay and military benefits.
Are you looking for a way to become more involved in your community? The Coronado Chapter sponsors a college scholarship program that currently includes eleven $1,000 scholarships per year for high school seniors in Cochise and Santa Cruz counties, and awards for JROTC cadets, political forums and other community activities.
Annual Coronado Chapter dues are $15.00 for Regular members and $10.00 for Surviving Spouse members, so you can afford to try our local chapter. New members get their first year for free!
