Valley of the Sun
The Arizona Chapter of MOAA was the first Chapter to receive a Charter in the
State of Arizona. The Charter was issued by
MOAA on 22 October 1956.
Most of our members live in the Phoenix Metro area--Cave Creek, Carefree,
Scottsdale, Mesa, Fountain Hills, Glendale and Phoenix proper.
Maricopa County is the second fastest growing county in the U.S. and Phoenix
is now the sixth largest city. All you have to do is visit and you will
see why! Come visit our great state and our state's number one MOAA chapter.
A hearty welcome to you! All newcomers are encouraged to call us or attend
one of our many events. Let's us show you why you should join Arizona's
first and finest chapter.
Even if you only want some information or advice, please contact me or any of
our Board of Directors. Phoenix has a lot to offer--that's why we're
here--and hopefully our website provides you a glimpse why.
Ronald R. Green, LtCol USAF (Ret)
President, Arizona Chapter of MOAA
Chapter social meetings are held monthly, alternating each month
between dinner or luncheon format. We conduct business and
legislative awareness meetings as called for by the President. These
meetings are generally held in the Scottsdale and Phoenix area.
Current objectives of the Chapter are to ensure each social
gathering is entertaining and informative. Business meetings are
generally planning sessions and Legislative updates. Our goal of
having a strong, viable TOPS program is now reality. This is a major
project we give continued, strong emphasis. Anyone wishing
information on the Phoenix job market should contact our TOPS advisor or
any member listed at the top of our web page.
Our current membership is 212 including 47 auxiliary members and
growing rapidly--74 new members in 2002 alone.
