Ten Things The Nashville Chapter Does for you

  1. REPRESENTS federal retirees/employees within the state. NARFE is the only organization lobbying for our earned rights/retiree benefits at the state level. Bear in mind that no U.S. Congress or Tennessee General Assembly can be relied upon to treat us fairly or with concern ...Nashville Chapter and Tennessee Federation of Chapters (TFC) has to take the initiative.
  2. PROVIDES a unified voice in Nashville when dealing with the governor and the General Assembly and educates state legislators and local officials about concerns of federal retirees/employees. It helps state legislators refine proposed bills affecting us all.
  3. PROMOTES the objectives of NARFE throughout middle Tennessee. The TFC is the logical organization to set specific and attainable goals for the chapters to support within the state, in accomplishing the objectives of National Headquarters. TFC speaks for all Tennessee members on National NARFE policy issues. The Nashville Chapter actively supports the efforts of the TFC.
  4. FACILITATES effective group action to accomplish common objectives. By establishing a viable political base at the grassroots level, it channels member efforts so as to avoid personal agendas, narrow political viewpoints and pet peeves.
