The right candidate will be interested in making sure that Laramie is a great place to grow and age. They will also be organized, communicative, and like building connections in the community. No formal education or experience is required.

Time Commitment:
We understand that this is a volunteer position, so the expectations and hopes for this position would be alternating strategy meetings and work sessions, in addition to some outside work with AARP and in the community. Likely resulting in about 4 to 5 hours per week, about 15 to 20 hours per month. In the event of two Co-Directors, these commitments would be split accordingly.
