I have been a member for about a year joining when I turned 50 on a whim after seeing an internet posting about jobs for the over 50 crowd. I have just recently gotten more involved with searching the site and seeing what all there is here. There is so much more benefit to membership than I expected but will admit the website can seem a little daunting and convoluted at times. I look forward to having a productive relationship with the organization and assisting in goals of redefining aging as I always thought this was an OLD folks group too. Having served 20 years in the Military I obviously am hoping to get very involved in the Veterans Resources side of AARP as well.
