Chapter Presidents and NARFE-PAC Chairs,

  Here is the Washington specific 8th Quarter NARFE-PAC statistics by chapter.  As we head into the start of the 115th Congress with its special challenges, please review your chapter’s performance and think what you can do to improve as we move further. 

  In addition, here is information from the current Federation Reporter concerning NARFE-PAC. 

     “As we begin the 2-year legislative cycle for the 115th Congress, our NARFE chapters’ emphasis on NARFE-PAC contributions becomes increasingly important. With a hiring freeze, already in place for some agencies, and with discussions about healthcare, current and future benefits, etc., NARFE will need every resource at its command in working with our elected officials. With this in mind, NARFE’s goal for this new legislative cycle is $1.5 million – a 50-percent increase from the previous cycle!   To this end, chapter presidents need to ensure their chapter NARFE-PAC chairman position is filled. NARFE-PAC should be discussed at every meeting, regularly included in chapter newsletters, and routinely solicited while also encouraging members to become sustainers.   The online PDF versions of the NARFE-PAC brochure and collection forms, for the 2017-2018 cycle, are now on the NARFE website, www.narfe.org, and also the 8th cycle reports for the 2015-2016 cycle. These reports provide very interesting and good comparative information –  everything from what our federation’s chapters contributed to what our federation and region contributed. Also in the reports is the amount given to elected   officials, and if they won or lost their election.

      Per NARFE, there will be “5 giving levels this cycle: monthly sustainers, and one-time contributors at the $250, $100, $50 and $25 marks. Monthly contributors and those who give $250 will receive a cozy, navy colored, fleece NARFE blanket. Contributors who give at any of the 5 levels will receive a corresponding 2017-2018 lapel pin.” The pins are not yet available. I will keep chapter presidents and NARFE-PAC chairmen posted on when they are. Please note, however, contributions at any amount are always most welcomed and appreciated!      

  Remember, March is NARFE-PAC month!”  Start planning now to kick it off in your chapter.  Finally, should you have general questions about NARFE-PAC, please contact me.
