Community Chapters Home - CARP


Join your local CARP Chapter

CARP's advocacy is put into action by a network of regional Chapters, representing our members in communities across the country. Whether it’s hosting engaging events, rallying for change on local issues or mobilizing our national campaigns, our Chapters are an integral part of CARP’s advocacy work.
Our Chapters also serve as a social outlet for older people in their communities, offering a much-needed source of connection and comfort for those who may be feeling isolated or who simply want to share their passion for political engagement with a new group of friends.
Chapters represent CARP’s national infrastructure, through support and advancement of its mission. CARP needs a strong, active network of Chapters throughout the country.
Our Chapters’ leadership and commitment to volunteerism is an invaluable resource that strengthens CARP and its members. Chapters not only provide a means of extending CARP’s objectives and presence at the community level, they are, in effect, “Club Houses” for CARP members. They provide an organizing principle for members to collectively develop ideas and activities; take leadership roles in their communities; promote volunteer service and partner with others.
Chapters facilitate the lines of communication between the national office and members throughout the country and help keep members informed and involved in the policies and priorities of the organization. CARP’s Chapters provide a means for members to get involved in CARP’s mission at the local level, providing a relationship between members, communities and the National programs and services.
Chapters provide a means for members to put their talent, creativity, energy, knowledge and sense of community-spirit to work in the service of their community and on behalf of Zoomers throughout the country.
All of which make communities with Chapters better places to live.
