NEW!“Staying On Course: A Look at the 115th Congress.”NEW!

A message from NARFE's Legislative Department to the Members:

The 115th Congress is on the verge of taking unprecedented actions that could dismantle the earned pay and benefits of federal employees and retirees. To help prevent these unfair and disproportionate benefit cuts, you'll need to stay informed, and be prepared to take action. Are you ready to fight back and protect what you've earned?

Join NARFE Legislative Director Jessica Klement and Deputy Director John Hatton for NARFE's February legislative webinar, “Staying On Course: A Look at the 115th Congress.” Learn what's already been proposed, what's on the horizon for Congress, and what you can do to protect the benefits you earned through a career of public service. There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end. 

The hour-long webinar, including Q&A, will be hosted on Tuesday, February 7, at 2 p.m. ET. Click HERE to register now! Registration for this live event is limited to the first 1,000 registrants, so don't delay.

The webinar will be presented using GoToWebinar. After you register, you will receive an email with a unique login from GoToWebinar. Approximately 60 minutes before the webinar, you will receive a reminder email with your unique login information. Note: the login information may recommend a microphone hook-up. Since we will take questions at the end of the webinar via a chat box, you will not need a microphone hook-up.    

If you are unable to attend the live webinar, no need to worry! It will be archived on the NARFE website within 48 hours. If you have any questions regarding this webinar, please email NARFE’s Legislative Department at leg@narfe.org.

Thank you,
NARFE’s Legislative Department
