About the Arizona Chapter

The NRLN Arizona Chapter was the first to organize under the NRLN's chapter structure in January 2013. The Arizona Chapter was originally established to reach out to US West/Qwest/CenturyLink retirees who were members of their retirement organization (TRA/AUSWR-AZ), which disbanded. In fact, many of the Board Members from TRA-AZ became leaders of the NRLN Arizona Chapter: Martha Deahl, Susan Olson, Roger Sanger, and Ken and Jennifer Gornall.

The Chapter also welcomes members from other companies and public entities as long as they are not already members of an NRLN Association (see Member Associations under “about us” at www.nrln.org . Retirees who become NRLN Chapter members will be informed on federal legislation that impacts their retirement income security and reduce health care cost.

All AZ Chapter members are advocates belonging to the NRLN Grassroots Organization Network. Some NRLN AZ Grassroots’ advocates volunteer to become AZ 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 are to educate the members of Congress on the NRLN’s Legislative Agenda (see the Legislative Agenda tab under www.nlrn.org), to make them aware of pending legislation that needs support and provide feedback of their performance (see Grassroots tab on www.nrln.org then click on Congressional Report Cards).

The NRLN Arizona Chapter Member Benefits:

To become a member of the Arizona Chapter click below or send an email to arizonachapter@nrln.org with your name, email address, home address and telephone number. Note whether you retired from US West, Qwest, CenturyLink or any other company, or whether you are still employed by the company.

We could use other retirees to help us interface with our AZ 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 of who cannot travel to visit their Senators and Representatives. Please help us spread the word about the NRLN and specifically the AZ Chapter and the work we are doing to help protect retirees’ interests. Please discuss our chapter with all your friends and relatives that are retired and give them a copy of the following NRLN AZ Chapter Membership Form.
