2017 NARFE Legislative Training Conference


Are you a NARFE member interested in learning more about NARFE’s legislative priorities and how you can take action?
Are you a newly appointed Congressional District Liaison or chapter legislative officer and not sure how to fulfill this role? Are you a veteran legislative chair trying to get more of your members involved in grass-roots advocacy? Then the Legislative Training Conference is for you!

The 2017 NARFE Legislative Training Conference will be held Sunday, March 12, to Wednesday, March 15, at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center in Alexandria, VA. The three day conference includes training, national speakers and the opportunity to network with fellow NARFE grass-roots activists. The conference culminates in a visit to Capitol Hill, where you will use your new skills in meetings with your legislators.

New for 2017:

•  Conference being held Sunday – Wednesday so that NARFE members can meet with legislators on Wednesday, when they are likely to be in Washington. DC. 
•  Closing reception from 5-7pm on March 15, in the Rayburn House Office Building Foyer to mingle with members of Congress and their staff and fellow leaders in the federal community, as well as connect with fellow NARFE members and debrief with NARFE Legislative Department staff about your experiences on Capitol Hill advocating for NARFE's legislative priorities. 

Legislative advocacy is NARFE’s core mission and the Legislative Training Conference is the premiere opportunity to learn from the NARFE Legislative Staff and national leaders.


Participation is open to all NARFE members interested in becoming first-class advocates and learning how to organize their local chapters and federations.

The $175 registration fee includes three buffet breakfasts, two full lunches, one buffet dinner, all materials, a closing reception and transportation to and from Capitol Hill on March 15 for Congressional meetings. Federations should consider using Ten Percent Funds to help offset the cost of registration for participants from their states. The $175 fee is not refundable. 


The rate at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center is $169 per night, plus applicable taxes, for a total of $194.51, per night for single- and double-room occupancy.  The room rate is available for three days before and after the Legislative Training Conference, space dependent.
