The Imperial Polk Chapter has been a chartered affiliate of the National Association since 1970. Its current membership includes more than 52 officers representing all seven uniformed services and all grades from warrant officer to flag officer. Through its various committees and auxiliary, the chapter sponsors a wide range of programs and activities throughout the year. These are some of the highlights:

• There is a monthly (SEP - MAY) social event for members, spouses, and guests. Normally, it is a dinner meeting held on the third Friday of the month in various locations (see-enclosed schedule of events). The evening begins with social time and after dinner; occasionally we have a lunch meeting but at either, there is an address by a guest speaker on a topic of particular interest.

• Our legislative committee is deeply involved in promoting state and national legislation in the interests of service members, active and retired, enlisted personnel, officers, their dependents, and survivors.

• Our personal affairs committee is always standing by to “take care of our own.”

• Annual awards are presented to distinguished ROTC/JROTC cadets in area colleges and high schools.
