You may have seen an email from the AARP Office of Volunteer Engagement regarding a new volunteer liability waiver and media release. AARP is committed to regularly evaluating the process to ensure we were on the right path. After careful consideration, re-assessing potential risks, and listening to your valuable feedback, effective immediately, AARP leadership has ceased the implementation of the volunteer liability waiver and media release (“the waiver”). More information will be coming from AARP national and your State Office.
