The National Active and Retired Federal Employee (NARFE) Association North Charleston Chapter held its annual conference May 12-14 at Embassy Suites in North Charleston.

NARFE is a nonprofit, 501(c)5 membership association dedicated to improving the benefits of retired federal employees. NARFE has some 300,000 members: active federal employees, retirees, their spouses and survivors, and over 1,300 chapters.

NARFE also offers electronic chapters to members who wish to receive their information electronically. Their agenda includes “extend the Premium Conversion rights that federal and postal employees have to federal annuitants” and “repeal the Social Security Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP).”

Through both of these acts, NARFE is trying to increase the pensions of retired federal workers. NARFE has chapters all over the United States, including almost every state. Additionally, there are chapters in Washington, DC; Puerto Rico; Panama and the Philippines. Most members of NARFE are covered Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) or the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS).

One of the guest speakers at conference was Dr. Drew K. McPhail.

McPhail presented on the topic Advancements in Non-Surgical, Non-Invasive treatments for Chronic Spinal and Neuropathic Pain Syndromes. The topic lent itself to audience interaction with great questions and a better understanding of treatment options available.
