Chapter Name Change
The members present at the June 7, 2003, luncheon meeting voted to change the Chapter’s name from The New Hampshire Chapter of The Retired Officers Association to the New Hampshire Chapter of  the Military Officers Association of America, and to amend the by-laws to reflect this change.  The vote was 81% in favor of changing the name, which will become effective on August 1, 2003.  We are busy preparing the necessary paperwork to file with the NH Secretary of State’s office and the IRS to reflect the name change.

If you have a TROA name tag and wish to purchase a new MOAA name tag, please contact Ed Warfield.  The only difference between the name tags is the lettering across the shield.  The new ones have “MOAA” across the shield in place of “TROA.”  Many members have stated that they want to continue wearing their “TROA” name tags and that is perfectly acceptable.

If you have any questions about the name change, please contact Paul L. Bernard at (603) 229-1334 or by e-mail at
