Hank Greenberg: Celebrating the Legacy of Jim Campbell, AARP Maryland's Visionary State President


Dear Friends and Colleagues:

It is with mixed emotions that I share the news of Jim Campbell's well-deserved retirement after six impactful years as the volunteer state president of AARP Maryland. Throughout his tenure, Jim's commitment to public service and advocacy has significantly shaped our organization.

As our most visible spokesperson, Jim addressed critical issues such as food assistance, veterans affairs, utilities, and matters affecting seniors and, in 2021, was appointed by Baltimore City Mayor Brandon Scott as co-chair of the Baltimore City Commission on Aging. His pivotal role in shaping our outreach has made a lasting impact. With a career in education and social work and a remarkable 24-year years of service in the Maryland House of Delegates, Jim brought a wealth of experience to his role as state president.

Jim's ability to blend legislative expertise with grassroots efforts ensured that AARP Maryland's community outreach events were effective and memorable. His passion, determination, and willingness to take on any task, regardless of size, have left an indelible mark on our staff, volunteers and Marylanders aged 50-plus.

We are not bidding farewell to Jim -- we are pleased to share that he will continue to serve on the Baltimore City Commission on Aging, lead volunteer initiatives with AARP, and enjoy quality time with his wife, Charlene, and puppy, Molly.

Join me in expressing our deepest gratitude to Jim Campbell.

AARP Maryland State Director
