e世博网站 is the largest association of retired government employees in the United States and is the primary voice and committed advocate for North Carolina’s retired public servants. Currently, e世博网站 advocates for the following:

2024 Proposed Advocacy Goals

  1. Advocate for annual cost of living adjustments for all state and local government retirees.
  2. Strengthen and protect the state’s defined benefit plan to attract and retain the best and brightest public servants.
  3. Defend public sector benefits so all public sector retirees can participate in traditional retirement systems.
  4. Ensure the State of North Carolina will continue to fulfill its constitutional and legal requirements to fully fund North Carolina Retirement Systems and the State Health Plan.
  5. Expand the Bailey tax exemption for state and local retirees and pursue other tax exemption opportunities for government retirees.

e世博网站 Advocacy Agenda

Our e世博网站 Advocacy agenda is created every biennium and reviewed annually by our Board of Directors and our Government Relations Committee prior to the start of the General Assembly’s long session. Long sessions occur in odd-numbered years and short sessions in subsequent even-numbered years.

Because the lobbying goals of the association trend around similar issues: healthcare, pension sustainability, cost of living adjustments for retirees, among others – our advocacy priorities and goals do not often fluctuate in subject, but in subject matter. In more recent years, achieving progress toward our advocacy goals has become more complex due to the changing political tides and conflicts that make them increasingly more difficult to accomplish.

Our Government Relations team is the lobbying arm of e世博网站. Our lobbyists team and Government Relations Committee are responsible for carrying out the advocacy goals and agenda as created and adopted by the e世博网站 Board of Directors.
