The mission of the Chapter can be summarized in three words: Service, Camaraderie, and Advocacy. We seek to serve in our local communities, focusing on programs for young people planning to serve or who have served in our military, to come together periodically to enjoy the company of our fellow officers, and to support MOAA's national mission by advocating locally for a strong national defense.

Our meetings are held at 5pm on the third Monday of the month (except July and August). Light appetizers are served, and we generally try to conclude in time for everyone to be home for dinner with their families. We will normally have a speaker of interest to the group at each meeting, typically speaking on a military topic.
Our board generally meets at 4pm on the same day of the meeting. We encourage any member or prospective member who is interested in helping to lead any chapter activity of interest to join us for the board meeting.
