September 2020

Greetings! My name is Henry Brattlie. I want to thank all the Federation members for electing me as President of the North Carolina Federation for the 2020-2022 term. I consider it a great honor to occupy this position that my predecessors have so ably filled in the past.

I want to start by talking about our need to continue, as those who came before us did, to “pay it forward.”  A great many of us who reside in North Carolina are reaping the benefits of the Bailey Settlement as well as other advocacy derived benefits. We reap these benefits because many years back members of NARFE worked towards legislation retaining our benefits and supporting a court case that ultimately became the Bailey Settlement. The Bailey Settlement allows many of us to not pay NC taxes on our federal retirement benefits.  This is not true for newer retirees. It is my considered opinion that we have a moral imperative to work as hard, or harder, to ensure that current active and retired Federal employees share equal or greater future benefits. 

During the course of the next four months, I expect NC NARFE will develop YouTube videos, that you can watch from the comfort of your home, that will give you step-by-step guidance on how to effectively use the various components of the NARFE Advocacy Center. I personally find it easier to follow video guidance than written instructions.  More tools you are comfortable using, the more effective NC NARFE will be.

Additionally, I would like to challenge each of you to recruit one or more new members between now and December 31, 2021.  Do you have a friend, spouse, other relative, or former coworker, who was or is a federal worker and/or spouse?  Encourage them to join! NARFE has a history of successful legislative advocacy. One reason is because we have a large group of voting current and retired Federal employees. A second reason is we have both chapter and national members who are regularly meeting with our state and national legislators. If we allow our numbers to continue to decrease, we will no longer have that position of strength.

It is my goal to implement a mission-based budget system. We need to know how we plan to spend the money that is available in an effective and efficient manner. In addition, we have recently commissioned a Special Revenue Committee to look at ways that the Federation can be less dependent on membership dues. I am very optimistic that we will find a variety of ways to broaden our revenue stream.

After the 2020 Annual Meeting, the Federation created a YouTube channel for NC NARFE. It is named the NC NARFE Channel. This is a repository of NC NARFE videos. We have converted them to YouTube to simplify access for every member. We have all the 2020 NC NARFE Annual Meeting videos, Durham Digital Chapter Meeting videos, and more available there. It is my hope that we will be expanding that site to include a variety of training videos.

The 2020 NARFE National Election results have been announced and are shown below. All the positions were reelected. If you wish to see the results in their entirety, they are available on NCNARFE.org. I will write about the impact of the various bylaw changes in my next article.

National President: Ken Thomas (non-contested)

National Secretary/Treasurer: Kathryn Hensley

Region X RVP: Bill Shackelford

Thank you again voting me to be your Federation President for the 2020 – 2022 term.  I commit to maintaining and expanding NC NARFE as a vibrant organization. I will work closely the board, standing committees and other special committees to accomplish this goal.
