MOAA is part of the leadership of the Military Coalition, a group of organizations that works on behalf of military members and veterans. Frequently, MOAA is called by congress to speak on behalf on issues that effect active duty, retired military and veterans of all ranks, an indicator of the respect shown to MOAA by members of both political parties.

Almost all business is conducted at the Board Meetings that are open to all Chapter members.
