With more than 855,000 members statewide (as of Jan 2013), AARP Indiana's small, but mighty, staff relies on an extensive network of volunteers to help us in our goal of ensuring Hoosiers 50+ live their best lives possible. Our staff is led by AARP Indiana State Director June Lyle, and consists of Associate State Director for Communications Katie Moreau, Associate State Director for Community Outreach Mandla Moyo, Associate State Director for Advocacy Networks Sarah Waddle, Associate State Director for State Advocacy Ambre Marr, Senior Operations Administrator Cindy Lahr and Senior Program Assistant Mandy Suiter.
We have a volunteer leadership team that helps set our agenda - our AARP Indiana Executive Council. They represent all of the different regions of the state and are led by AARP Indiana State Director June Lyle and AARP Indiana State President Curt Sylvester. Current members include: Joe Kendall (Southwest), Joe Everett (Indianapolis), Clyde Hall (Central), Bill Singler (North Central), Jeanne Wease (Nothwest) and Bob White (Southeast).
Our volunteers do an array of service activities. They range from: participating on our legislative team and advocating on behalf of issues that affect the 50+ and their families at the Indiana Statehouse; passing out pertinent information at health fairs; taking part in our Ready for Retirement events; assisting in the planning and implementation of events in your area; and, helping us get out the word about the latest happenings with AARP Indiana! Interested? We'd love to have you as a volunteer. Contact us now, please.
