Maryland Federation of NARFE Chapters Call to State Convention – 2015

The Maryland Federation of NARFE Chapters will conduct its 42nd State Convention Sunday evening, April 26 through Tuesday, April 28, 2015, at the Carousel Resort Hotel in Ocean City, Maryland. The return to Ocean City and to a 2-day format was determined by a vote of the Federation Board and will give attendees an opportunity to fully realize the objectives of the Convention.  Special discount rates have been obtained from the recently renovated and enhanced Carousel Resort Hotel to allow participants to fully enjoy the facility while fulfilling their responsibilities.

The purpose of the biennial Convention is to elect officers for the next two years, to discuss resolutions germane to the Federation, and to exchange views with senior Federal and Maryland State officials on issues related to the protection and enhancement of current and retired Federal employees’ earned benefits.  In addition, there will be workshops on legislative and membership issues.  There will also be a reception on Sunday evening, two luncheons with speakers, and a banquet with a live band on Monday.  We are inviting excellent speakers to present topics of current interest to members and expect lively discussions on innovations that can help the Federation excel.
