NARFE Chapter 893 Springfield

Honoring Our History / Embracing Our Future

Welcome to Springfield Chapter 893 of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE).

Springfield Chapter 893 is the largest of the 59 chapters in Virginia, and the second largest chapter in the United States. Chartered in 1963, with 14 members, we have embarked on our 52nd year, currently serving 1291 members.

More than numbers, however, we are recognized for having a strong voice in national and local legislative issues affecting Federal retirees, active Federal employees, senior citizens, and the public at large. In addition to this primary NARFE mission, as individuals and as a chapter, we have made invaluable contributions to the Northern Virginia community. Our past presidents have been recognized as dynamic and dedicated leaders who through their selfless service have paved the way for this chapter's successful history.

In order to prepare for the current year's legislative challenges, we must rely on our dedicated volunteer members to challenge efforts to adversely impact our earned benefits. Further, we are charged with preserving the economic future of generations of active and retired Federal employees.

In addition to our mission-related activities, we offer monthly chapter meetings to inform our members of the chapter's business and national and state legislative activities and issues. We invite interesting and relevant speakers to share timely information concerning events of the day, updates on members' benefits, retirement annuities, etc., and services provided by chapter volunteers, committee chairs and Board members.

We engage with our members in social events, such as a December holiday luncheon, a Spring luncheon/function, complimentary attendance at Little Theatre of Alexandria plays, special social events, and activities in support of funding research for a cure for Alzheimer's Disease with the Alzheimer's Association of America.

We invite you to join other members at our monthly chapter meetings held the second Wednesday of the month (September through May) at the Kirkwood Presbyterian Church, 8336 Carrleigh Parkway, Springfield, Virginia 22152. For directions to Kirkwood Presbyterian Church, please view the church's website, Our social period begins at 12:30 p.m. The business meeting starts at 1:00 p.m., and adjourns at 3:00 p.m.
