Founded in 1964, the AOC is headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia. AOC has members in 47 countries with 65 chapters in 20 countries. AOC’s membership includes executives, scientists, engineers, managers, operators, educators, and military personnel. As of September 2016, there are 13,000 AOC members with 10,500 members in the USA and 2,500 international members.
In 2017 (January to May), nine new members joined AOC that are affiliated with the APG-Susquehanna Chapter. We welcome and thank all our new members for their interest and support of our AOC Chapter.
It is important to distinguish that membership is with the AOC organization rather than a specific AOC chapter. When an individual joins AOC, they join the AOC organization and the dues go to AOC not the Chapter. The AOC assigns a Chapter affiliation by geography using mail zip codes. If an AOC member is outside of a Chapter’s geographic area then a specific Chapter affiliation request can be made to AOC. Often members working in a Chapter’s geographic area have a mailing address that is outside of a Chapter’s geographic area. The Chapter membership is reviewed annually by the AOC and the Chapter receives a few dollars from AOC for each member affiliated with the Chapter.
As of May 2017, there are 227 AOC members affiliated with the APG-Susquehanna Chapter. From January 2017 to May 2017, the average number of AOC members affiliated with the APG-Susquehanna Chapter is 225. The Chapter is ahead of last year’s annual membership average of 191.
AOC National sends membership renewal information yearly.
