APOs are volunteer leaders at Federal Retirees. They support the Reach 338 network and branch advocates. They also work to ensure that the Association is seen, and its priorities are understood by every sitting member of Parliament.

Your activities could include:

  • Assisting the district directors and national advocacy committee in identifying advocacy priorities, plans and issues requiring action.
  • Working with volunteers and members to engage MPs in your region on Federal Retirees’ priorities as part of our Reach 338 initiative.
  • Liaising with our staff team and your local network on election campaigns to engage candidates, including federal and provincial election campaigns.
