What is VGEA?

The Virginia Governmental Employees Association (VGEA) is a voluntary, non-partisan organization of state employees and retirees that advocates on behalf of its members for better pay, benefits, workplace protections and retirement matters. We champion these issues with Legislators, the Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM) and the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) Board of Trustees.  

Representing the Commonwealth’s Employees and Retirees

For more than a half century, the VGEA has worked with Virginia General Assembly members and every Governor to protect the interests of the Commonwealth’s employees and retirees and to ensure that their needs are addressed. Learn More
