The Clearwater Chapter of MOAA, Military Officers Association of America, is part of the Florida Council of Chapters which includes 43 MOAA chapters in the state of Florida. The Florida Council reports to Military Officers Association of America, see (www.MOAA.org), headquartered in the Washington, D.C. area.  The chapter is focused on grass roots advocacy to ensure veterans benefits, while supporting various vital veteran programs in the communities where we live that make a difference.  Your chapter also serves as the Veterans Voice on both Congressional Veterans Affairs Committees in our area.
Membership in our chapter is open to commissioned officers from all seven uniformed services and their spouses. Although we highly encourage our members to also become members of MOAA to take advantage of additional benefits, it is not a requirement of membership in our chapter. A small annual chapter dues is requested for our operating and charitable contributions accounts.  
The chapter has a dynamic program schedule highlighted by nine monthly luncheons each year, held on the 4th Wednesday of each month, except June through August. They are in keeping with our primary purpose of Friendship and Fellowship with our peers, along with keeping our membership informed of the latest issues facing veterans. The location of the luncheon, ambience, food, and quality of outside speakers are planned to make your monthly visit extremely beneficial and highly enjoyable. Over the past year, on average more than half our members attended these events.  Members also receive our monthly Drumbeat newsletter that promotes recent and upcoming activities and highlights the many chapter members participation in support of veteran activities.
Additionally, we currently sponsor two JROTC chapters in our area; the USMC at Clearwater High and the USN at Dunedin High. Through our fundraising efforts we present each chapter with annual college scholarships. We also participate in a community project focused on helping homeless veterans get back on their feet and support the highly publicized Honor Flight program which recognizes our heroes from WWII, Korea and Vietnam.   
I encourage your investigation of the above MOAA website to peruse the great benefits of membership in advocating for relevant government policies for our veterans through our parent organization. We will furnish you membership information in MOAA at your request.
Please feel free to contact us via the contact us tab on this website.
