AARP Chicago Volunteer Appreciation Event
On October l6th, I attended the AARP Illinois Chicago Volunteer Appreciation Event. This event was to honor Chicagoans who had made major contributions by volunteering with the AARP this year. I am rather impressed with how the AARP supports and recognizes all who support their organization, whether it be staff or volunteers. I took this opportunity to also meet some distinguished attendees, and have set up some meetings for the future. One individual in particular is now CEO of a center in the Chicagoland area. I find that these events are not only beneficial in that you get a chance to meet people from all walks of life, but it is a great way to network. I am grateful to Heather and Carmenza for their continued support.
Sometime during the next few weeks, I will be meeting with the AARP staff to strategize more about the plan and moving forward. Having hit the 50+ status and being employed at one job for 25+ years, I kind of had the mindset , that "this is it, what else is there to do?" This win has me going in directions I never thought I would go in. My best advice is to stay focused, open minded and never stop believing in yourself. Stay up on techology and network, network, network. If you can dream, believe it and see it, then go for it.!!!!!!.......More to come......
