Wildfires are a fact of life in California, but we’ve never seen anything like the devastation of the past two years. Millions of Californians have been affected, from breathing unhealthy air to losing their homes, and even losing loved ones. These fires have brought unprecedented sorrow and hardship to Californians of all ages -- but particularly to older Californians, who sadly represent a large portion of the fatalities caused by these fires.
We are currently accepting applications for the AARP California Executive Council, a volunteer body that provides direction and leadership in carrying out AARP’s strategic priorities in California. Those selected will serve an initial two-year term beginning in 2019. In addition to their leadership and advisory roles, Executive Council members represent AARP as a spokespersons and serve as liaisons to current and potential strategic partners. AARP California is committed to maintaining an Executive Council that is as diverse as California itself.
AARP California is forming a Veterans Advisory Council to help us build a strategy for serving and working with veterans and organizations across the state. The Council will also review any veteran-related bills in the legislature and make recommendations to the state director on appropriate action. The ideal member will have experience in one or more of the following areas: general veterans’ issues, veterans with disabilities, self-employed veterans, veterans who are caregivers, young/student veterans, etc. This is a VOLUNTEER role. Please see the full description below. To apply or request additional information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Urban Bicycling can be enjoyed by everyone.
