Dear VFN Members and Friends,

Please be informed, based on the need for safety and security during this time of concern for our well-being and protection, we have canceled the Virginia Federation of NARFE Conference for 2020. We hope you remain safe during the remainder of this COVID-19 National Pandemic.   

For those who have hotel reservations at the Doubletree, you do not need to contact the hotel.  The Doubletree Midlothian Hotel has agreed to cancel all bookings made under our VFN Conference contract.  You will be notified by email of your cancellation with no charge to you or the VFN. 

As for the conference and or banquet registrations, supporters, and patrons, you will be contacted by the various program chairs to elect:

  • a complete refund
  • allow us to maintain your registration and or supporter funds
  • apply the monies to next year's conference

 The 2021 VFN Conference will be held at the same hotel, April 11th through the 14, 2021.   By allowing the VFN to apply your funds to next year's conference, you will not incur any increases that may apply in the coming year. 

We hope you will remain out of harm's way and take all precautions to ensure that your health and safety is first and foremost at this time of severe coronavirus concerns. We will keep you informed as information is passed on the us.  If I can be of any assistance to you at this time, please don't hesitate to contact me.  My number is 703-802-7344. Email:

Be Safe, Stay Healthy,

Constance T. Bails
