At AARP we have a concept – One AARP – which seeks to highlight and connect into one big picture the many streams of good work in which AARP engages with our members and the 50+ population at-large.
Whether you know us for our advocacy work, our educational outreach, or our presence in communities, this annual report presents all that AARP accomplished in Wisconsin in 2013.
Throughout these pages, you’ll see highlights of how our volunteers and staff worked together on issues that matter to you at both our state and national capitol.
You’ll see how this collaboration empowered people to accomplish their goals and dreams by preparing for retirement, exploring new careers, and understanding how changes in health care would affect them in 2013 and beyond.
You’ll see how we expanded our presence in communities through hunger mitigation efforts, AARP community service programs like Tax-Aide, Driver Safety, and efforts to preserve independence at home as we age.
You’ll also see how AARP is listening to you through the continuation of our “You’ve Earned a Say” initiative and the expansion of our communication channels to bring more of our members and the 50+ population into conversations about how to make life better for all Wisconsinites as we age.
As we turn the page to 2014, we want to take another moment to recognize the work of AARP volunteers across our state. Without their contributions and commitment, we would find ourselves unable to accomplish most, if not all, the work in this report.
Without further ado, I’m pleased to present to you the AARP Wisconsin 2013 Annual Report.
