NRLN New Mexico Chapter

About the NRLN New Mexico Chapter

The NRLN New Mexico Chapter was organized under the NRLN’s chapter structure in January 2014. The New Mexico Chapter was originally established to reach out to US West/Qwest/CenturyLink retirees who were members of their retirement organization (TRA/AUSWR-NM), which disbanded.

The NM Chapter also welcomes members from other companies and public entities if they are not already members of an NRLN Association (see Member Associations under “about us” at www.nrln.org .

All NM Chapter members are advocates belonging to the NRLN Grassroots Organization Network. Some NRLN NM Grassroots’ advocates volunteer to become NM Congressional District Leaders and make local visits to their respective Congressional District Offices and sometimes travel to Washington, D.C. to attend an NRLN “Fly-In”. The purpose of these visits is to educate the members of Congress on the NRLN’s Legislative Agenda (see the Legislative Agenda tab at www.nlrn.org), to make them aware of pendi ng legislation that needs support and provide feedback of their performance (see Grassroots tab on www.nrln.org then click on Congressional Report Cards).

We could use other retirees to help us interface with our NM Senators’ and Representatives’ local offices. If they don’t hear from us, they assume we are happy with what they are doing.

We need a voice for all retirees, many who cannot travel to visit their Senators and Representatives. Contact Cassie Kelley at cassiek@comcast.net or Martha Deahl at newmexicochapter@nrln.org. Please help us spread the word about the NRLN and specifically the NM Chapter and the work we are doing to help protect retirees’ interests.

Please discuss the NRLN with all of you friends and encourage them to sign up to receive free emails at www.nrln.org. Remind them that their names, emails and home addresses are on a secure database designed for communicating with them and federal government officials.
