A NARFE Chapter can be found in nearly every
city and town across the USA, as well as in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Panama and Guam. These local representatives
of NARFE offer a host of benefits and opportunities for their members. Join a local chapter to:
- Make Yourself Heard. NARFE
chapters provide critical grassroots support for NARFE’s national legislative agenda. Your benefits are under attack
and NARFE is in the fight to preserve them. Chapter members let their legislators know what’s on their minds and open
doors for NARFE’s legislative team in Washington, D.C.
- Stay Informed. In addition to the rich communications from Headquarters, chapter
newsletters, websites and meetings expand on the local and state issues affecting the federal community. Every NARFE chapter
is unique, offering speakers and activities that meet the interests of its members.
- Find Community. NARFE chapters unite federal employees,
retirees, their spouses, and surviving spouses and provide an opportunity to connect with fellow Feds, get involved in leadership
and governance, and develop close and lasting friendships.
