Membership Assistance Program available to aid AMO members hit by natural disaster

The American Maritime Officers Membership Assistance Program (MAP) is a voluntary disaster relief fund established to aid AMO members, applicants for membership in AMO, and AMO retirees who suffer damage to their property as the result of severe storms and natural disasters, such as Hurricanes Michael and Florence.

Benefits from the AMO Membership Assistance Program are paid in varying amounts determined exclusively by need.

The application for relief benefits under the Membership Assistance Program is available online.

The MAP is a permanent, independent, tax-exempt and voluntary disaster relief fund established by the AMO National Executive Board. AMO made an initial contribution to the fund at its inception, and the fund is now sustained by individual voluntary tax-deductible contributions.

AMO members can make tax-deductible voluntary contributions to the AMO Membership Assistance Program via authorized vacation deductions, or by sending checks or money orders to:
