Meeting the membership challenge by helping chapters recruiting more chapter members is a top priority for MOAA. Chapter Recruiting focuses on chapter membership vice national membership.
Common Join Form (Fillable PDF) / Common Join Form (Microsoft Word document)
Chapter recruiting just got easier with MOAA’s Common Join Form which incorporates the enrollment requirements for MOAA membership and chapter membership. We’ve included detailed instructions on how to add your chapter’s name and logo on a Fillable PDF or Word Document. To access the instructions for both of these formats please access these links: (1) Fillable PDF Instructions and (2) Microsoft Word Instructions.
A personal message about the Chapter Recruiting program from MOAA's senior director of Council and Chapter Affairs, COL Terri Coles, USA (Ret).
Chapter Recruiting is MOAA's new nationally sponsored chapter recruiting program. More tools and better information to chapters will help recruit chapter members more effectively.
To help with your recruiting efforts, we have provided tools and materials for your use, along with answers to frequently asked questions, program awards and incentives, success stories, and instructions on how to work your potential-member lists. Get more resources for chapter leaders on our forms page.
