NYN Media CEO Corner Podcast with Beth Finkel from AARP

When some people think of AARP, they may think of senior citizen discounts, but what they may not know is that the organization is an advocacy group that is working to advance causes not just for those who are retired, but for middle-aged and younger Americans as well. Those causes include advocating for access to Medicaid, retirement plans and affordable housing, and preserving Social Security. Beth Finkel, the New York state director of AARP joined us to discuss this and more. Finkel worked on community outreach before she was tapped to lead the office three and a half years ago. That office has 2.6 million members statewide and 800,000 members in New York City.

New York Nonprofit Media regularly interviews nonprofit leaders to discuss their professional experience, lessons learned, perspectives on the industry and more. To recommend a candidate for our CEO Corner, contact Dan Rosenblum at drosenblum@nynmedia.com.
