Coffee and Conversations: August Brew

coffeemugaarp

In June AARP North Carolina rolled out Coffee and Conversation, a new series of informal but informative programs on relevant topics for AARP members and people 50+ in Charlotte. The feedback from those programs was fantastic and so we are pleased to present our August line up of programs, which continues our discussions on health and our community.

Come grab a cup of joe and engage with your neighbors on a host of topics important to older North Carolinians including the Affordable Care Act, making Charlotte more age-friendly, Social Security and Medicare, and the fight to prevent a hike in Duke’s utility rates. We hope that you take advantage of these exciting new AARP programs that will help improve living and aging in Charlotte.

August Schedule:

August 5: 1-3pm.  “Get Around” Livable Communities listening session at Morrison Library
How livable is your community? Does your home and your community have the features and access to services you need to age-in-place? Come join us for this important discussion on how AARP is helping create livable communities and share with us what steps you think need to be taken to make the Queen City a city for all ages.
RSVP Now!

August 6: 1-3pm.   You’ve Earned a Say at Morrison Library
Last year, AARP launched "You've Earned a Say" so we could hear directly from our members what they thought about the various proposals to change Social Security and Medicare. After more than 6,000 sessions across the country, you've spoken loud and clear! Join us for this next round of You've Earned a Say so we can share the feedback we've received and AARP's position to support responsible solutions, not harmful cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

August 8: 1-3pm.   Utility Rates and 50+ at Morrison Library
Significant rate increases for utility ratepayers living in North Carolina have recently been proposed. AARP North Carolina has been part of the effort to push back against this proposal due to the burden it places on older Carolinians. If you were not able to attend one of the public hearings on this issue – no problem. Come hear about what was proposed, what the status is for rate increases, and how you can make your voice heard on this issue.

August 12: 6-7:30:  Affordable Care Act. How the ACA Affects you and Your Family at Morrison Library
With implementation of the Affordable Care Act underway, many people are pushing aside the politics and looking for answers to their questions about how this law will impact them. Join us for a comprehensive discussion how what's in the law, how it is being implemented in North Carolina and how you may be affected.
