Our Chapter was recently recognized by MOAA National for its Retention of Membership. We were one of 91 chapters that retained at least 80% of their total membership. We still have a challenge to get new members, but it is a feather in the cap to not lose those already on board, especially, as we all get older. Plus we got a $250 retention incentive award from National MOAA.
MEETINGS - Our July Meeting at Tucker's was inspirational with the personal story of our guest speaker, Mr. Brennan Beck, Clemson University's Director for Military and Veterans Engagement and the story of how he came to Clemson and was instrumental in starting and building the Veterans Engagement program there. Our Piedmont Chapter supports his efforts with a monetary gift.

MOAA EARNS RECOGNITION. The Military Officers Association of America’s efforts on behalf of its members and the wider military community have again earned recognition from The Hill newspaper, which named MOAA one of the top lobbying associations for the 12th straight year. MOAA was the only military or veteran service organization named. Lt. Gen Atkins said “But our work is far from finished. We will remain engaged with every branch of government on behalf of our nation’s service members and veterans, and their families, to ensure their efforts are acknowledged and their earned benefits are protected.” The HILL is a nonpartisan publication with a 24,000-copy print circulation that includes every Congressional office.
