As a member of AARP since 1992, I agree with you completely that AARP must be transparent and willing, to a fault, to reveal to members, as well as to the public, all details justifying their tax exempt status.
In other words, to lend credibility to their mission statement, AARP must provide all with not only the expenses, easily and openly available, of CEO Novelli, other officers, and the operating expense of the AARP organization; but the benefits accruing to members and seniors it purports to serve and to provide results and value rendered by AARP.
It is far easier to find recipes, travel discounts, insurers, and the like on this site than a justification for AARP's existence comparing dollars of operation to beneficial results or value for seniors.
I express my opinion with no disrespect to the many employees of AARP who labor in the "vineyards."
I no longer have a vote as a member, but I have a voice. As a member, I await AARP's voice responding to the Bloomberg allegations.
Information about AARP and it's internal workings are available, but not readily. It takes much research. It seems that there is some effort to not reveal it. One reason that I'm no longer a member is because it seems that the members exist for the benefit of the organization, and not the other way around.
