AARP Bylaws: Getting Trapped in the Web


From the Washington County (Oregon) Law Librarian:

If you are looking for AARP bylaws, either the national ones or for the Oregon Chapter, please contact AARP directly. The Washington County Law Librarian does not have them.

A couple of years ago, in response to a patronā€™s request, I sent out an email message to colleagues on a law librarian listserve asking if anyone had found an online source for AARP bylaws. No one had, but since then, I receive emails every couple of months from someone asking me to ā€œplease send me a copy of the AARP bylaws.ā€

I did find the bylaws back then. I phoned AARP directly and was sent a copy. (Sometimes the telephone still works better than any other communication device (though, it probably doesn’t beat out love, affection, truth, justice, pizza, or key lime pie).)

If you need the bylaws, please call AARP. Their public relations (aka press center, media relations) staff members were very helpful.

    Yeah, I had the same problem. I was convinced they were on the website somewhere and after hours of searching I made a similar call.

    What a shame they can't make that easy and post them!
