Advocacy + Closing

Strategic Goal: Advocacy
One of the core values which NCRGEA provides its members throughout the state is being an advocate and voice for the retired government workers of North Carolina. Its representatives lobby the legislature and other policy makers on issues like healthcare, pension sustainability, and cost of living adjustments for retirees.
However, in more recent years, achieving progress toward our legislative goals has become more complex due to the changing political tides and conflicts that make them increasingly more difficult to accomplish.
NCRGEA seeks to expand its policy influence, not only by continuing to work towards securing COLAs, but by demonstrating to its members how it continues to fight for and secure a better quality of life for retirees in NC.
