Brent Halverson is AARP Alabama's new volunteer state president.
In the role, Halverson chairs the volunteer executive council, and in conjunction with the council and state staff, he works on planning, building partnerships and achieving AARP's local, state and national goals. During his 18-year AARP membership, Halverson has volunteered as a district advocacy team member, multicultural diversity trainer and investment fraud trainer.
He is a retired Auburn University faculty member in adult and vocational education, and was a faculty member at Georgia Southern University in adult and community education. He was a program leader for community resource development with Virginia Tech, and state director for adult and community education with the Georgia Department of Education.
Outside of AARP, he serves on the board of directors for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Auburn University and has served on the boards of directors for the Lee County Literacy Coalition and the East Alabama Youth for Christ. He has been an East Alabama Medical Center volunteer and serves on the Jubilee Council of Auburn United Methodist Church.
Halverson said, "With more than 400,000 Alabama members, AARP has a tremendous asset in every community – its current and potential volunteers. Nationwide, AARP is focused on ‘living’ life's second half rather than on ‘aging.’ Through AARP's engaging publications and growing digital presence, our increasingly accessible advocacy, service and branded benefits, we create value to millions of our members and contribute much to society.
“I look forward to this exciting new opportunity, and invite all Alabamians to come and join the effort."
Halverson and his wife of 46 years, Dani, are Auburn residents. They have two adult sons, Jason and Peter.
