Alexandria, VA – In response to President Obama’s nomination of Katherine Archuleta as director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE) President Joseph A. Beaudoin released the following statement:
 
"The National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association looks forward to swift Senate action on the confirmation of Katherine Archuleta as director of OPM, and working with her on the issues and concerns of the nearly five million active and retired federal employees. In the midst of a three-year pay freeze, increased pension contributions for new hires, furloughs of half of the federal workforce, and a new wave of retiring federal employees, it is important to build on former Director John Berry’s strong leadership at OPM. We look forward to continuing our close relationship with OPM in maintaining a strong federal workforce."
