Volunteer Spotlight: AARP Ohio Recognizes Volunteers Thoughout the Year


AARP Ohio truly appreciates its amazing volunteers. Each month, we'll highlight one on our social channels.


Joyce Madison, AARP Ohio Volunteer

Joyce Madison of Columbus was chosen to be featured as our first monthly Volunteer Spotlight as she was recently recognized at the 2023 Volunteer Awards event for her outstanding contributions to AARP Ohio.

As our speakers bureau lead, Joyce schedules presentations with community groups and identifies volunteer presenters. She also goes above and beyond to ensure AARP volunteers have access to our volunteer portal and
AARP resources. A trusted leader within the Central Ohio volunteer team, Joyce is known to encourage others to action, helping fill critical roles for events and initiatives. Additionally, she has joined multiple review committees, including the Community Challenge Grants and the Andrus Award Selection Committee.



Diane Byrd of Cincinnati embodies the AARP volunteer spirit by pitching in at events that make a difference for Ohioans 50+. Last year, she advocated for AARP legislative priorities at the Ohio Statehouse and promoted the importance of Social Security at the State Fair. Locally, she hosted one of our Social Security events and staffed the AARP Ohio table at the Urban League's Juneteenth event.
