AARP members across Virginia join together in local communities through independently incorporated chapters. These chapters offer informational programs, advocacy and service opportunities. You can join an AARP Chapter to meet new people, give back, and have fun. Chapter activities can include meals, cultural outings and trips, and for many, community service is a major priority. Click here to find a chapter near you!
