MOAA Chapter Activities
More than 425 autonomous MOAA affiliated chapters are chartered in the United States and abroad. Chapters offer local opportunities for camaraderie, job networking, and organized legislative action on local, state, and national levels.

The Jayhawk Chapter 

  • Was organized in 1990 and affiliated with the national office of MOAA that same year. Today, approximately 200 members in East Central Kansas belong to this chapter.

  • Is an active organization with bi-monthly dinner meetings, normally on the third Tuesday of the month, beginning in January. These meetings are located at the Lawrence Country Club. Since each meeting features an interesting program, your spouse and guests are invited to attend.

  • Legislative matters concerning the military community are of vital interest to our members. We take an active role in working with Congress on issues such as retirement benefits and health care.

  • Our chapter annually awards leadership medals and certificates to graduating Army, Navy. Marine, and Air Force ROTC cadets and midshipman at the University of Kansas.

  • You will receive our Chapter newsletter, January through November as well as the annual membership directory. 



Why should I join a chapter, I already belong to National MOAA?

“Why not? This is where you live, and the local chapter is making a huge positive difference in the local community. So my question to you is, why not join the Jayhawk Chapter and contribute to making a difference in your community?”

Chapter membership is open to all individuals who are serving or have served in an active or reserve component as a commissioned or warrant officer in one of the seven U.S. uniformed services--Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Public Health Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, as well as the surviving spouse of any deceased individual who would have been eligible for MOAA membership.
