AARP South Dakota offers short recorded updates via phone weekly during the legislative session, and monthly throughout the rest of the year. Not home? No problem, the message gets left on your answering machine. The messages inform you about important legislation that affects your friends and neighbors, remind you about events and activities happing in a community near you, and invite you to get involved to make a difference. To be added to our tele-update list, simply email us at with your name and phone number, or call 1-866-542-8172.

Several times throughout 2011 we’ll also be holding tele-town halls. This provides you an opportunity to connect with AARP South Dakota, join discussions, share your thoughts, and ask questions right from your own home. To participate, all you have to do is simply answer your phone. When we call to invite you to join a tele-town hall, just stay on the line and join the conversation.

Do you prefer the social scene?

The AARP South Dakota blog features timely posts with up to the minute updates and information on how to register for events, take action on state and federal advocacy issues, or participate in community service projects. We’re also on Facebook. Check out videos from some of our Driver Safety Program Instructors, or see photos from our Lobby Day in Pierre. And if Twitter is your thing, follow us. During the legislative session we “live tweeted” during the Governor’s budget address, and during committee hearings on our key legislative issues. We encourage you to follow us, comment on our posts, share your thoughts and ideas – we want to hear from you – it’s your AARP.
