Zia Chapter

The Zia Chapter draws its members primarily from Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico. And we have a few members in other parts of New Mexico, such as Las Cruces and Roswell. Membership is currently at about 97 members. Our members primarily include: (i) National Guard personnel (currently serving and retired); (ii) active Army retirees who have retired in New Mexico; and (iii) employees of New Mexico-based defense contractors. The chapter was founded about 10 years ago by members of the New Mexico Army National Guard. Chapter activity has been sub-par over the past three years, but we are working to rebuild interest and conduct more activities. Our membership focus over the past year has been to enroll more enlisted personnel (both currently serving and retired) and to dispel the common mis-perception that AAAA is an officer-centric organization. We have had some success in this regard, primarily due to the efforts of chapter Vice President Ryan Haworth.
