This year, National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association chapters in Southern Indiana will host their State Federation Convention April 9-10 at the Clarion Hotel Conference Center located in Clarksville.
Elaine Hughes, NARFE National Secretary and candidate for the office of NARFE National President, will be the convention speaker and guest of honor. Hughes, a member of NARFE (www.narfe.org) since 1996, is dedicated to improving the benefits of retired federal employees. Hughes served 30 years as a federal employee. Early in her career, she worked for the U.S. Air Force’s Surgeon General’s Office, the Environmental Protection Agency and the President’s Air and Water Quality Boards. She was later employed by the Department of Energy where much of her work involved conservation, renewable energy and energy savings projects.
Hughes, a recipient of the Outstanding Contributions Award as Vice-President of the National Treasury Employees Union, is also a board member on the Federal Retiree’s Task Force of North Carolina.
