The Arizona Council of Chapters (MOAA) also referred to as AZCOC is an affiliation of MOAA Chapters throughout Arizona. The AZCOC is the state entity which provides support and assistance to our member Chapters. There are 9 MOAA Chapters and 3 Satellite Chapter in Arizona and all are members of the AZCOC. The AZCOC meets semiannually at rotating host chapter sites. We publish a newsletter semiannually which is distributed to all members and guests of the AZCOC.

Chapter Highlights

Granite Gate Senior Living CardsHeartfelt cards from The Northern Arizona Chapter of the Military Officers to our Residents. This proud group of men and women let our Residents know that we are all in this together and ” this too shall pass”. The cards brought smiles and some tears. We consider the Military Officers part of our Granite Gate Family and thank them for their service to our Country. This thoughtful gesture during this very stressful time was greatly appreciated.
