Weigh in via an on-line survey
In its efforts to determine the top priorities of the next legislative session, AARP Montana is turning to the experts – AARP members throughout the state.
As part of an all-encompassing evaluation of the opinions, concerns and priorities of the 50-plus in the state, AARP Montana has launched a nonscientific survey to capture member input on a number of issues. The results of that survey will set the legislative agenda for the 2017 legislative session in Montana.
"We want to know what’s on people’s minds," said Tim Summers, AARP Montana State Director. "Whether they're boomers looking forward to retirement or older Montanans looking at options for home and community based services, we're trying to gauge their opinion. There's no way to know what everybody's experiencing unless we ask."
The survey seeks answers to questions ranging from importance of aging in place to whether AARP should focus on strengthening financial protections for consumers. Survey respondents are also asked to weigh in on any issue, and determine activities that would be of interest to them.
The survey is accessible here.
The answers from the survey will be coupled with other aspects of the on-going evaluation, such as informal focus groups, face-to-face discussions, Tele-Town Halls and legislative forums. The goal is to strengthen AARP’s connection with members in the state through an ongoing dialogue about their wants and needs.
“This evaluation will help AARP Montana better prepare its legislative agenda as well as the overall direction of the office by determining exactly what’s on the minds of members throughout Montana,” Summers said. “The results are important as AARP Montana continues efforts to enhance the quality of life for all as we age.”
The survey is ten questions and should take a few minutes to complete. Summers expects the results of the survey to be finalized by the end of December. To take the survey now click here .
