ARE YOU A MOARC MEMBER?   You should be!!! — And MOARC needs you!

MOARC is currently in its 2019 membership drive and is reaching out to current and former members to renew or rejoin, and we’re also looking for new members from across our region. 

MOARC is a volunteer non-profit, created in 1952 to promote more beneficial use of water resources in the Missouri, Kansas and Arkansas River basins after the disastrous 1951 flood.   For more than six decades MOARC has been key in helping members meet project needs for their community, and also works to inform policy impacting our region and members’ interests.  We have a long and successful history of putting stakeholders together with policy-makers to help achieve tremendous success, including many reservoirs and local flood control projects. 

Today, our membership consists of local governments, utilities, associations, businesses, and even some individuals, promoting navigation, flood control, electric power, irrigation, recreation, fish & wildlife, the environment, conservation and the beneficial use of land and water resources within the Missouri and associated river basins. 

We strive to be the leading regional voice for water and water related land resource project, policy and programmatic issues.  To remain effective in that role, we seek to expand our membership both geographically and by interest areas:  Flood Control & Risk Management, Water Quality & Supply, Power, Environment, Agriculture, Shipping & Ports and Recreation. 

The MOARC Board approved a revised dues schedule outlining a new class of memberships for communities, businesses, associations, councils, other entities or individuals. Within each class of MOARC membership listed below there are three suggested contribution levels to assure the right fit for your community, organization or other membership type.  

Contribution Levels

Sponsoring Communities, for local governments or districts with a role in water resources management or infrastructure;

Partnering Organizations, for businesses or associations aligned with the MOARC mission of promoting multi-beneficial use of water and related land resources in our region; and,

Supporting Members, for entities or individuals with a vision toward river basins managed for the benefit of people, the environment and the economy.

The membership levels within each type are structured to provide a variety of membership benefits, such as: committee participation, Board service, Congressional/Agency visits, or receiving regular communications through MOARC’s weekly WATERdrops and quarterly newsletter, Water®.

So, why be a MOARC member?  No matter what you do, if it’s related to water, then MOARC’s for you!  Our involvement and integrated approach to various, and sometimes diverse, aspects of water resources management means what we do, is important and likely to be valued by you. Your membership and participation are needed for us to continue with our effective advocacy.  We also host events and have activities to encourage interaction among our members and with State, Federal agencies and elected officials. 

Are you interested in or wanting to work on water resource issues?  If so, you’ll want to be a member and participant of MOARC.  Now is the time to renew membership and continue your support or join anew!!  Membership forms can be found at  For questions regarding membership, you can contact Dave Combs, MOARC Executive Director at or at 816-686-1289.
