service officer support
Service Officer Support
  • What Service Officers said . . . . .
  • “I was ready to bunch this SO job because I was just plain disheartened after beating my head against the wall the last few years. .” “so keep the flow of information coming.”
  • “You’d get better exposure by an on-going article/section in the NARFE Magazine, or preferably in the Quarterly News for NARFE leaders.”

“We state and chapter service officers generally have a much smaller window on service officer news . . . yet we are expected to provide information to our federations and chapters via reports, newsletters and live presentations. Any assistance from your office could be invaluable to us in the performance of our duties and responsibilities and, perhaps more importantly promote a stronger espirit de corps among us.”

  • “It would be great to have a full listing of possible direct contacts with personnel in OPM and like organizations rather than taking pot luck and the need to repeat the same information to more than one person.”

“What I would like to see is a training module either on-line or on a DVD that could be viewed at home.”

  • “One training that might help us service officers is the recruitment seminars that NARFE is running.”
  • “The only thing I recommend is that your office keep service in the forefront.”
