Catering to the over 50 crowd, a.k.a. “Baby Boomers,”
this non-profit organization offers membership to anyone over the age of 50 for only $12.50 per year. It has over 36 million members and does significant lobbying for the older generation in order to improve the quality of life for those heading toward or into retirement. There are 3,500 local chapters and they also publish two magazines, the AARP Bulletin and AARP The Magazine.
