Business Unit Description

AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, with a membership of nearly 38 million that helps people turn their goals and dreams into 'Real Possibilities' by changing the way America defines aging. With staffed offices in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, AARP works to strengthen communities and promote the issues that matter most to families such as healthcare security, financial security and personal fulfillment. AARP also advocates for individuals in the marketplace by selecting products and services of high quality and value to carry the AARP name.

The Community, State and National Affairs (CSNA) team is a key contributor to AARP's mission of social change for Americans 50+ and their families. CSNA drives social change through our advocacy work by giving our members a voice-at the federal, state, local levels and community levels-on issues important to them such as Financial Resilience, Health Security, and Personal Fulfillment.

With a network of 53 offices in each state, the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, we live where we work. This allows us to do what we do best...meet the people and directly engage in our communities to find out what they need and want, enabling us to educate our members with programs and information that is relevant to them.

Our state offices work hand-in-glove with AARP's national office in Washington, DC. This reach-from community to state to federal - enables CSNA to better empower people 50+ to enjoy the way they live and work today, while reaching their goals for tomorrow...their life - their way.
