Professional Education Outreach

The MOAA Foundation provides funding that enables MOAA subject-matter experts to travel to over 50 U.S. military installations each year to present seminars offering critical information affecting the quality of life of thousands of currently serving military members, veterans and their families. Because MOAA is a highly trusted and well-respected national voice for military families of all ranks and all services, MOAA is one of the very few organizations whose subject-matter experts are invited on base/installation to conduct these seminars.

The Program

MOAA currently-serving Professional Education Outreach seminars provide critical, personal financial management and lifelong professional development information to active-duty military members of all ranks and their families where they work. Each presentation helps family members plan their future with proven strategies relying on best practices in areas of career development, financial and transition planning. Additionally, this program provides periodic live and virtual professional education opportunities on issues unique to the military lifestyle such as absentee voting, VA disability and health care claims and changing military benefits.

Thank you for the very informative workshop on salary negotiations at the recent Hiring our Heroes Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling [Washington, D.C.], Hiring Fair. This was my first event as I start to work my transition and retirement from the Navy into a new adventure."
