NARFE Convention In Louisville

Jack and I went to the 2008 National Active and Retired Federal Employees association (NARFE) Convention in Louisville this past week. We went as delegates to support our NARFE chapter and to support two former Army Auditors running for national office with NARFE.

This is the historic Galt House Hotel which is located next to the Ohio River in Louisville, Kentucky. This is where the NARFE 2008 Convention was held last week.

Below is a photo of the grand ballroom where delegates from all fifty states and several territories gathered for the 2008 NARFE Convention.

This is the entrance to the Galt House. Note the Kentucky Derby motif.

Now What Is NARFE?

NARFE -- one of Amerca's oldest and largest associations -- was founded in 1921 with the mission of protecting the earned right and benefits of America's active and retired federal workers. In other words, this is the "AARP" for feds and as a retired federal employee, it's a mission is dear to our hearts. NARFE is also the largest employee/retiree organization. It represents the interests of nearly five million federal employees, retirees, spouses and survivors. The 2010 Convention will be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the 2012 Convention will be held in Reno, Nevada.
