Yes. Go to http://www.narfe.org, NARFE is the National Active and Retired Federal Employee Association. it is nationwide with chapters in many areas of every state. I urge you to join. The HQ is in DC. Narfe lobbies Congress to protect your federal pay and benefits. Narfe has been doing this activity since 1921 and has influenced many laws affecting the feds. NARFE sends out alerts whenever there is some congressional action pending affect federal employees. NARFE uses another website called, http://www.protectAmericasheartbeat.org to allow members to send letters to their congressfolk. If you belong to a chapter there usually is one meeting per month. Members also receive a well done monthly magazine that discusses and explains many questions federal employees have. The magazine alone is worth joining. NARFE ‘s strength in terms of lobbying congress is the strength of its membership. The more members the stronger the impact on the politicians who keep track of such things. NARFE partners with other city or state gov employee organizations in lobbying local legislatures at the state level also. Join NARFE, IT IS A WIN WIN for all employees.
