AARP members (age 50 and older) and their spouses are eligible for chapter membership. NRTA members may join AARP Chapters or Retired Teachers Association Units.
The first AARP Chapters were organized in 1960. By 1961, over 100 chapters were organized. Today, there are over 1,400 AARP Chapters across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. A minimal yearly fee is charged to help run the business of the chapter. Some chapters have fund-raising activities to help support local senior projects, provide scholarships for students, or donate money to worthy causes.
Our Chapters offer another way to make AARP the next chapter in your life!
