LAKE TAHOE CHAPTER DUES AND MOAA NATIONAL DUES
Here are some important facts that should clarify questions that arise about paying the Lake Tahoe Chapter dues of $25 per year and MOAA National dues.
Lake Tahoe Chapter dues: Your annual chapter dues of $25 are requested in November and December via the web page and the Christmas dinner/dance flyer emailed to you. If you attended the dinner, you probably paid your dues then also. If not, you either paid them separately or forgot to pay.
Your dues for 2023 are due by January 1, 2023.
We do not send an invoice or bill for the annual chapter dues of $25. If your dues are not paid by Jan. 1st, you will not receive a written notice of that. If you are not sure if you paid your 2023 dues, or if you are unsure and wonder if you “paid ahead”, please text or email the treasurer to learn your status. Gary@TahoeThomsens.com or 775-830-1409. He will reply within a week.
Those exempt from paying Lake Tahoe Chapter dues are WWII Veterans, widows, widowers, and active duty members.
MOAA National dues - These are separate from the chapter dues. And, if you are a LIFE member of MOAA National, you still need to pay your chapter dues - $25.
If you are a new member of MOAA National, you should receive a voucher as part of your “Welcome Letter” from MOAA National. It entitles you to one year of free chapter dues, but you must forward the voucher to the chapter.
SEND YOUR DUES OR DINNER CHECKS TO TREASURER, MOAA-LAKE TAHOE CHAPTER, P.O.BOX 3970, Incline Village, NV 89450

On August 17th, we had an excellent talk delivered by Terri Hendry, the Communications Director of the NV Department of Veterans Services. I wrote the following to the Director of the NV Department of Veterans Services to express our chapter's appreciations for her presentation.
"Profuse thanks for sending Terri Hendry to address the Lake Tahoe Chapter, Military Officers Association of America last evening (Aug 17, 2022). She did an absolutely outstanding job. In addition she visited the venue in advance to make sure she understood the audio-visual aids in Incline Village's Parasol building so the presentation flowed smoothly.
This event was our annual fundraiser for the Northern Nevada Civil Air Patrol, so her audience consisted of retired military (including a Marine Major General and Air Force Special Ops Brigadier General, young flier and learner air cadets, and their senior supervisors.
Terri's talk was pithy, interesting and illuminating. Not one audience member had any idea of the scope of services available from NDVS .
Thank you so much for sending this lovely and intelligent lady."
Very Respectfully yours,
James Clark, CAPT(JAGC) USNR (Ret)
President, MOAA - LTC
