Vote for NARFE Officers, Regional VPs and Bylaws!

Remember to vote for NARFE national officers, regional VPs and bylaws. Information regarding the candidates and bylaws and resolutions can be found in the March, April, May and June issues of narfe Magazine.. Your June narfe Magazine contains your hard copy ballot and pin number inserted after page 6; you can send that in or vote online.  But remember to vote!  Each NARFE member is eligible to vote this election, so take the time to do just that.  If you and your spouse were registered together, you may find that you were only  sent one pin number to vote.  Call in for assistance at the number listed on the bottom of the  ballot.  We ran into this problem in Chapter 409, so I’m assuming this may be a problem for others.  I will post the resolution when I hear from our member.

RESOLUTION:  For misplaced or missing ballots, call Election Services Co. at 1-866-720-4357 on Monday–Friday between 9 a.m.– 5 p.m. Eastern Time. They will be able to assist you with missing ballots or other voting questions..

A Message from our Federation President:

As President of the Maryland Federation, first I want to welcome you to the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE), Maryland Federation.  NARFE is the only organization that protects your earned benefits as an Active or Retired Federal Civilian Employee.  The Maryland Federation is the statewide umbrella organization that directly provides resources, support and training to NARFE members who are residents of the state.  The Maryland Federation website will keep you informed about the grassroots activities happening across the state that further the NARFE mission.

We will continue to maintain this website and trust that you will find the information to help you in your active career or in retirement.  Keep in mind that all NARFE members are encouraged and welcome to participate in any National, Federation or Chapter activity that you may desire.  Please review the Chapter tabs on this website to follow the activities of our Chapters.  Other sections on this site will help members from Chapter Officers to active members to potential new members.  We have a link to the NARFE National website to register new members.
