   The Catawba Valley Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) was chartered in 1982. It covers a region of North Carolina comprised of six counties: Alexander, Burke, Caldwell, Catawba, Iredell and Lincoln.  Over the years, the chapter has won four MOAA national 4-Star Levels of Excellence Awards and five 5-Star awards; the most recent was for year 2022. 


   MOAA, including this affiliated Chapter, is dedicated to maintaining a strong national defense and preserving the earned entitlements of all members of the uniformed services. This local MOAA chapter also engages in sensible philanthropic activity, and it provides support to Junior ROTC units that are cultivating the next generation of military professionals and civilian leaders for our nation.


   Robust chapter membership ensures our “One Powerful Voice” is heard on Capitol Hill and in the state General Assembly. Membership is open to those who hold or have ever held a warrant or commission in any component of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, Coast Guard, Public Health Service or NOAA, including their spouses.


   Obviously, the chapter also fosters camaradiere amongst its officers. General Membership meetings/dinners are held bimonthly at the Lake Hickory Country Club, in Hickory. A reservation slip for those events is always provided on the last page of each chapter newsletter. For navigation purposes, here is Lake Hickory Country Club's address and phone number:


                                      430 17th Avenue NW

                                      Hickory, NC 28601

                                      (828) 328-2981
