National Convention Wrap Up

More than 1,000 delegates, alternates and guests converged on John Ascuaga’s Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks, NV, August 26-30 for NARFE’s 32nd Biennial National Convention. At the end of the five days, they had achieved the big payoff they were betting on: They had adopted a Legislative Program for the 113th Congress; re-elected National Officers for new two-year terms to continue the jobs they had begun in 2010; and approved a major revision to NARFE’s Bylaws, to help propel the Association forward.

National Officers put all their cards on the table, discussing in detail what they are doing to reverse the Association’s membership decline, including creating electronic chapters, and reporting on efforts to put the Association on a firmer financial footing.
Among the big winners at the Convention were the five “Lunch and Learn” sessions and the service officer training, indicating that Convention delegates are as eager to use the meeting as an opportunity to gain new skills as they are to participate in the business of governing the Association.
