VCOC Quicklook  

The Virginia Council of Chapters (VCOC) of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)  consists of 17 MOAA chapters. As of 31 March 2020, VCOC numbered 2485 members. 

VCOC MOAA members also serve in leadership positions on Virginia boards, commissions and councils  and other veterans' organizations, such as The American Legion and Military Order of Purple Heart. VCOC is one of the 25 Veterans Service Organizations serving on the Virginia Joint Leadership Council (JLC), which pursues state legislation beneficial to veterans.  

VCOC works in Virginia to further the goals of national MOAA and the local chapters.  By charter, MOAA and affiliated councils and chapters are nonpartisan.

VCOC meets quarterly. A Chapter "VCOC Rep" is designated by each affiliated chapter. The chapter President, VCOC Rep, Legislative Rep, and other interested leaders of VCOC MOAA are all welcome at VCOC meetings and events.  

On an annual basis, VCOC particpates in three legislative events. First, storming the hill in Richmond. Second, MOAA National Storming of the Hill in DC. Finally, the annual VCOC Congressional Appreciation Luncheon.    

The VCOC publishes a quarterly newsletter, entitled The Council Crier, posted on the VCOC website.
