AARP offices tentatively plan to re-open March 30

Youngtown historic chapter installs new officers


AARP AZ state director Dana Marie Kennedy reported March 17 at due to COVID-19 precautions AARP Arizona staffers will work remotely for the next two weeks. All employees, contractors, temps and interns of AARP and its affiliates at all locations will work from home and not report to AARP offices. The current plan is to return to offices Monday, March 30.

“To be clear, this does not mean that we are shutting down our operations,” Ms. Kennedy stated in a news release. “Rather, we are taking this step to minimize the potential for coronavirus and COVID-19 exposure among our AARP family and to contribute to overall public health, while continuing to best serve our mission and our members. You can count on me and my team responding to all emails and calls the same way we always do we will just be working from our homes.”

Plans are ongoing for the May 28-29 Volunteer Summit, she added.
