North Shore and Chicago Chapter
Military Officers Association of America
The North Shore and Chicago Chapter is an affiliate of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA).
MOAA and its affiliated councils and chapters are non-partisan.
The mission of the North Shore and Chicago Chapter is to benefit the members of the uniformed services, their families and survivors, and to advocate for a strong national defense, while providing needed support to the community and its members.

The Chapter holds monthly meetings, March - June and September- December, featuring guest speakers on topics relevant to the members. A special Christmas party is held each December. In addition the chapter supports local JROTC programs and 2 ROTC programs and other veterans organizations. We also support indivdual members with personal services, as desired.
Our Chapter supports the MOAA national legislative agenda and we annually invite our Congressional Representative and Senators to speak to the chapter. The chapter is also active in supporting the Illinois Council of Chapters and the IL DVA in various state veterans' issues. We also issue e-mail legislative alerts for both hot federal and state actions.
The Chapter meetings are luncheon meetings usually held on the third Sunday of each month beginning at 12:30 PM. Locations vary and are announced in the chapter newsletter and at chapter meetings. The chapter also has a group available to our members on Facebook titled "MOAA North Shore & Chicago Chapter."
