Welcome to our site!  Please see NVP Kelley's celebratory letter to mark the milestone of surpassing 47,000 members in "Member Documents" on the right-hand menu.  Our 5th District Calendar of Events and our District 5 NEWSLETTER are also in "Member Documents."

We are committed to keeping the membership of AFGE District 5 informed of issues that Federal employees face each day. With more than 47,000 dues-paying members, District 5 is the largest District in the federation that include engineers, nurses, doctors, lawyers, mechanics,  teachers, janitors, etc., and they share only one trait — commitment.  As a member, you have the opportunity to meet other dedicated people at local, district and national levels. You can attend the very best training and exchange ideas with others through a variety of venues. And you can take advantage of our variety of member benefits and services.

We have our goals set high--we are committed to reaching the next milestone of 50,000 dues-paying members by June 2016!

"We approach each assignment, large or small, with the same commitment to excellence. Our goal is to have your satisfaction lead to our next new member."
