AARP to Host Web Chat to Discuss Congressional Report

Association president will take questions from AARP members and the public

WASHINGTON—AARP announced today it will host a web chat to answer questions about the new report on the Association from three members of the House of Representatives.  AARP President Lee Hammond will be available to address the organization’s advocacy efforts as well as its structure and finances.

“Our members come first in everything we do, whether it’s our advocacy on Capitol Hill and in the states or the products and services to which we lend our name,” Hammond said.  “This is one of many opportunities AARP members and the public have to talk with us directly about the work we’re doing.  We look forward to answering their questions tomorrow and addressing members of Congress on Friday.”
