MOAA Levels of Excellence Awards

MOAA Levels of Excellence Awards

Each year, councils and chapters may request to be recognized for one of two Levels of Excellence awards:

  • The very, very best councils or chapters receive a five-star award; and
  • above-average councils or chapters receive a four-star award.


The Levels of Excellence submission web-based portal will be available soon. Please note, the portal will require a user name and password. First-time users will need to create a username/password combination (different from your MOAA login).

Council and chapter leaders can take this opportunity to review the LOE criteria for this year’s 2021 Levels of Excellence Award nominations.  Learn more by downloading the Informational Guide (PDF).

Council and Chapter Guide to MOAA’s Basic Membership

  • Committee Module (CM) Administrators can export a roster of their chapter members and sort on the MOAA membership status column to identify the non-MOAA members. These chapter members can be contacted for their consent to become a MOAA Basic member. Learn more by downloading the PDF guide.


Directions for Committee Module (CM) Administrators

  • When you log into your Committee Module (CM), select the “View All” button to view everyone on your roster on one page.
  • Next, select the button on the left side of the “Customer ID” button to select everyone on your roster.
  • Next, go to the “Actions” button and select “Export to File,” then select “Go”. The box will display, allowing you to export the file in Excel.
  • Select “Excel,” then “Open”.
  • Finally, sort the Excel spreadsheet on the column with “Membership”.


Anyone listed as blank are non-MOAA members, who you should contact to ask their consent to become a MOAA Basic member. Anyone who is a non-MOAA member on your roster who gives you permission for MOAA to process them as a basic member can be sent to MOAA headquarters on an Excel spreadsheet using the same columns listed on the spreadsheet which you just exported.

The Excel spreadsheet can be saved on your hard drive for your records. Please be sure to add two new columns to the spreadsheet with “Type of Consent” and “Date of Consent” which is also mentioned on the Chapter and Council Guide to MOAA’s Basic Membership guidance. This will indicate to MOAA headquarters that you received this individual’s permission and the date that the permission was granted in order for our MOAA staff to process Basic MOAA memberships for each person listed on this roster.
