Colorado Federation of Chapters


Paula Simmons, President

TO:  All members and potential members,


         As President of the Colorado Federation, I WELCOME you to the Colorado Federation of Chapters web site! The Colorado Federation of Chapters of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE) was established on July 5, 1962.  NARFE is a grass-roots organization whose strength lies with its members in the local chapters. Colorado is made up of 17 chapters,  of which one is a statewide chapter, all located within seven congressional districts of Colorado and representing over 4,400 members who are active and retired federal employees, as well as spouses and survivor annuitants. 

         The purpose of the Colorado Federation of Chapters, along with the national office of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE) and local chapters, is to aid and support NARFE in the objectives set forth in the National Articles of Incorporations and its Mission Statement. Our purpose is to support congressional legislation which is vital to the protection of our earned retirement benefits and oppose legislation contrary to those interests. To do this we encourage current and retired employees to contact members of Congress to assist in the protection of these benefits.  This site also provides information on the issues that are of importance to the current federal worker and retiree, both those covered by Federal Employee’s Retirement System (FERS) and Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) [see Employed Member section]. Links are also provided to direct you to another agency or website to assist in your needs.  The Federation holds a Convention in May of odd-numbered years. The next Convention in 2017 will be posted on the web site. The federation lobbies also for your earned rights and benefits at the state level. By establishing a viable political base at the grassroots level, it channels member efforts so as to support National NARFE policies. NARFE also supports contributions for NARFE's political fund to support political candidates.  This web site will allow us to keep you informed along with the voice of the 17 chapters. Please visit all sections of this web site to find what interests will be of importance and valuable to you.


 Thanks for stopping by and come back again!
