Volunteers and staff at the State House in Augusta!

AARP Maine Tuesdays at the State House is an easy and accessible way for AARP members to be present and comfortable with the workings of the Maine State House.  Would you like to join us?  Every Tuesday starting on January 9th through April 17th, we get together as a group so we can learn about the inner-workings of the State House, meet our legislators, attend committee hearings and discuss our legislative priorities.

Send an email to me@aarp.org and we’ll let you know how to sign up!

Here are a few reminders:

1. We will meet at 10:00 in the second floor lobby of the Cross Office Building (outside the Education Committee room) and then walk over to security together. You can hang your coats in Cross.

2. You can park in the free garage right across from the Cross Building and walk directly over to Cross- there is no security.

3. We will send out a list of our legislative priorities in advance and any additional info that might be good to know for that week.

4. Please wear your red AARP Maine shirt. If you don’t have one, we will have red shirts available!

5. Bring a friend– and let us know if you plan to make it if possible!

6. Lunch in the Cross Café will be paid for by AARP. If you would like to be reimbursed for mileage when you come to the State House, we need you to fill out a volunteer application so that we can assign you a volunteer number for reimbursement. Once you complete the application we will send you an expense reimbursement form.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to seeing you!
