2014 – NRLN Legislative Agenda and Initiatives
Our Retiree Associations and Grassroots Advocates
Create A Strong Voice In Washington, D.C.!
The NCRO is affiliated with and supports the National Retiree Legislative Network (NRLN). The NRLN is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization whose strength comes from a grassroots alliance of management and union retiree associations and individual members. Retirees from 28 retiree organizations like the NCRO are among the current members. The NRLN Board of Directors, its Washington staff and tens of thousands Grassroots Advocates in all 50 states are dedicated to gaining passage of a legislative agenda to protect employer-sponsored pensions and benefits, plus keep Social Security and Medicare strong. The number of NRLN Grassroots Advocates increased by 40% in 2008 and visits to the NRLN website grew 80%.
Like all other NRLN retiree associations, the NCRO retains its’ independence, mission, website and all member services while we gain the opportunity to shape the NRLN agenda that represents 2,000,000 retirees from other companies . Our members are encouraged to sign up individually as NRLN members. Doing so will add strength to a nationwide retiree lobby.
The NRLN’s lobbying on Capitol Hill is based on the merits of its proposals. The NRLN does not spend
one cent on wooing members of Congress or their staffs—no campaign contributions, lunches, trips, etc. The NRLN’s lobbying is performed by its staff and Grassroots Advocates, people like you, who write and speak to their U.S. Senators and Representatives about retirement issues.How Retirees Can Help Make A Difference
