Meet Our New Communications Director

The AARP Maine State Office is pleased to welcome the latest member of their team, Jane Margesson, now serving in the role of communications director. Jane brings with her a wealth of experience in the field, including 20 years with AARP. As part of AARP Maine, Jane will work on advocacy and outreach initiatives building relationships and awareness opportunities with media outlets, volunteers, community organizations and coalition partners.

Jane began her career with AARP in Pittsburgh, PA where she worked with a small team to develop legal services programs for low-income older residents. These programs have grown into a nationwide service called AARP Legal Services Network, now part of AARP Services, Inc. In 2004, Jane joined the AARP state office in New Jersey and served there for seven years in the role of communications director. The New Jersey State Office successfully worked to pass laws in the state that provide meaningful benefits to their 1.4 million AARP members. These laws include The Identity Theft Prevention Act, The Prescription Drug Retail Price Registry and the Independence, Dignity and Choice in Long-Term Care Act.

“I am delighted to join the AARP Maine team, especially during such a critical time for older Mainers,” Jane says. “With programs like Social Security and Medicare in the public eye, it is so important for our members to know that AARP is here for them and that we will work together to protect these vital programs.

“I am hoping that our members will work closely with our office to bring our collective voices to the state house in the coming legislative session. There are many opportunities for volunteers to work closely with our office and help us achieve great things for Maine!”
