|Message from our President|
Welcome to NARFE Dulles Chapter 1241’s website. Dulles Chapter serves current and retired federal employees in Herndon, Centreville, Chantilly, Ashburn, Leesburg, Reston, Sterling and outlying areas. Our membership is divided between two Congressional Districts, the 11th to the East which is represented by Congressman Gerry Connolly; and the 10th to the west which is represented by Congresswoman Barbara Comstock. Congressman Connolly is a good friend of NARFE and fully understands the needs and importance of government workers. Congresswoman Comstock took Congressman Frank Wolf’s seat in January 2015 and we hope to introduce her to our chapter soon. As a chapter, we try to help our members understand and work with their representatives in Congress on issues of legislation that pertains to federal employees and annuitants. We are a chapter of approximately775 members. We publish a newsletter monthly except in July and August when the chapter is dormant. We hold a luncheon program monthly (except July and August) and try to have interesting and informative speakers. Speakers include our U. S. Congressional Representatives, Congressional candidates, delegates from the Virginia General Assembly, experts on health and safety issues, etc.
Dulles Chapter has a Service Officer, a key position in NARFE, who offers assistance to members or spouses in the event of a member’s death or serious illness with contact information for resources that may be of help.
Dulles Chapter is an active participant in the Virginia Federation of Chapters Board of Directors and annual convention as well as sharing information with other chapters in the Northern Virginia Caucus.
We hope that you will join us for an interesting program soon.
Patricia M. Wolfe, President
