Need a dynamic speaker for your next community event? The AARP Speakers Bureau offers free presentations on a variety of topics to companies, clubs, churches and other organizations.

AARP’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for people as they age. The speakers, who have many areas of expertise, can tailor the discussion to fit a group’s needs. Cincinnati-area volunteers who have completed special training are ready to give 30- or 60-minute seminars on:

  • Preparing family members to be caregivers
  • Preventing and recovering from identity theft, cyber safety and fraud
  • Optimizing brain health
  • Financial basics and retirement planning for people 50 and older
  • Living longer and living smarter
  • Understanding the basics of Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid

Speakers Bureau volunteers offer presentations filled with tips and resources. New topics are added regularly to the list of subjects.

AARP members in southwestern Ohio who would like to learn more about current topics, as well as groups or organizations interested in scheduling a speaker, should contact AARP in Cincinnati at or call 866-389-5653 toll-free. — Janice Brewster Weiser
