2017 NARFE Legislative Training Conference Information

Legislative Training


The heart of NARFE activities is work on legislation at all levels, from NARFE staffers contacting legislators in Washington, to informed NARFE members writing letters, making phone calls or meeting face to face with legislators in their home districts.


There are a number of tools available to train and inform NARFE members.


A good place to start is with a presentation that NARFE Assistant Legislative Director Dan Adcock made to the WSFC Convention in 2007, "Grassroots Legislative Training".
