Offutt Enlisted Spouses Club membership is currently open to any spouse of enlisted Active Duty, Reserves or National Guard personnel in the U.S. Armed Forces, as well as spouses of retired military personnel and spouses of current or retired Civilian personnel (GS-8 and below), located within the Offutt community. OESC Membership in the OESC is voluntary. Those who meet the eligibility requirements as defined in the Bylaws shall constitute membership.
OESC will not discriminate on basis of race, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, religion, or ethnic group. Members have no financial benefit accrued from OESC membership and are liable under state laws for organizational debts in the event the OESC assets are insufficient to discharge liabilities.
The cost for membership is $18 each quarter, which breaks down to $6 for one month or $72 for one year. To be a member, you must pay all months from the time you join until the time you resign, even if you may not participate in an activity or event each month.
We accept new members year-round.
