Applications Now Being Accepted for MOAA’s Currently Serving Advisory Council

MOAA’s Currently Serving Advisory Council (CSAC) is a diverse group of MOAA members representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, United States Public Health Service and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

CSAC members commit their time, share their perspectives as currently serving officers (active duty, Reserve, and National Guard), and advise the MOAA president on a variety of issues. Their contributions are vital to the long-term success of our member-driven organization.

Applications are now being accepted for the next class of the Currently Serving Advisory Committee. Those appointed to the Council will serve a term running September 2018 through August 2020.


What Issues Does the CSAC Address?

MOAA’s strategic plan will direct the topic areas of the Council’s overall agenda. Key areas within MOAA’s strategic plan include advocacy, membership, member engagement, and chapters and councils. The specific issues within these categories will vary based the legislative environment and immediate needs of the Association.

Past councils have provided input on readiness, family matters, retirements and healthcare; messaging for nationwide advertising campaigns, the introduction of a new tagline – Never Stop Serving, new logo development, the re-design of Military Officer, and more.

What Is Expected of CSAC Members?

While BASIC membership is adequate in meeting this requirement, membership at the PREMIUM or LIFE level is preferred. (BASIC membership is designed as a limited time, introductory membership for officers who have no familiarity with the organization.)

Meetings are typically held in the evenings from approximately 6:30 – 9:00 pm Eastern Time, but can vary. CSAC members are also invited to participate in MOAA’s annual Storming the Hill activities on Capitol Hill as well as periodic legislative meetings.
