Agent for Social Change to Lead Nation's Largest Membership Organization
"The need for reform is great, and Barry is ready to take on this important campaign on behalf of AARP's members, volunteers, staff and community partners," said AARP President Jennie Chin Hansen. "Barry's management skills, commitment to quality and leadership acumen will collectively pay dividends for AARP. Caring for his ailing father, however, was one of the most important achievements of Barry's illustrious career. Being a caregiver -- navigating the maze of insurance forms, care options and financing -- is the kind of personal experience that has fundamentally touched his core, as AARP works to bring Washington and the country together to create long-term health care and financial security."
