Public Relations Input for the Nov 17 – Jan 18

It is going to be a tough time for Federal Employees and Retirees because of the ongoing actions in Congress and the Administration.  Help get the word out about the threats, and the resources NARFE provides to help counter them.  Discuss them at chapter meetings, write and submit letters to the editor, and include them in your contacts

  Here are some of the tools to consider:

-        Make use of the NARFE fact sheets and white papers for information

-        Make use of the Webinar materials.  Post or hand out their flyers in local agencies and at locations frequented by current employees and retirees.  Flyers are available upon request from NARFE.

-        To keep your comments fresh, consider reviewing the news articles carried on the opening page of the NARFE web site, in the section titled “NARFE in the News”.  They carry statements by NARFE leadership and staff on the various issues.  Also make use of the “Latest NARFE News”, on the same page.

-        In short, use the tools that are currently available to you on the NARFE Website.  They have done an excellent job of bringing resources to your fingertips.
