Submitting a Resolution

To submit a resolution, use form F-3A. Resolutions are due by January 1, 2020.

Resolutions that meet the deadline will be entered in the log in the Office of the Secretary/Treasurer (NS/T) as they are received and, if complete, forwarded to the Bylaws and Resolutions Committee (BRC). The submitter(s) will be notified. Entities or parties are encouraged to submit resolutions through their federations. Where the resolution is being proposed by a chapter or individual member, submitting it through the federation would increase credibility for the committee.

Submitting a Bylaws or Standing Rules Amendment

To submit a bylaws or standing rules amendment, use form F-3C as revised September 2019. Please use the 2019 NARFE Bylaws when creating your amendments. Amendments are due by January 1, 2020.

NARFE Bylaw Article IX, Section 1 as amended in 2018 specifies that amendments for the bylaws and standing rules can be submitted by any of the following groups:

  • 20 members direct to National Headquarters
  • Chapter direct to National Headquarters
  • Chapter via a federation
  • Federation executive board direct to National Headquarters
  • Federation voting to National Headquarters
  • National Executive Board
  • A Committee designated by the NEB

Bylaws and Standing Rules amendments will be entered in the log in the Office of the NS/T, and if the format is complete and submitted in accordance with the procedures, they will be forwarded to the BRC for action. The submitter(s) will be notified.

The BRC is authorized to place amendments that meet the F-3C format on the 2020 ballot. For additional information regarding the amendments process, contact the Office of the Secretary/Treasurer at resbylaws@narfe.org.
