AARP Mississippi Seeks President for Volunteer Efforts

Posted on 05/31/23 by The AARP Bulletin

AARP Mississippi is looking for a new state president — its top volunteer role.

The president works with the state director, staff members and other volunteers to help set priorities and find ways to advance AARP’s mission of improving the lives of older Americans. The new president will start at the beginning of 2024, when the term of current President Gwendolyn Spencer Prater expires.

A successful candidate for the job must be an AARP member; a strategic thinker, planner, leader and team builder; able to work with diverse populations; and possess strong interpersonal skills. The term is two years, although that can be renewed twice. The president — appointed by the state director — will be provided training. Travel throughout the state and to meetings or training outside the state is required. Apply at aarp.org/ms.
