Life@50+ kicked off this morning with a bang. Balloons filled the ballroom as 11,000 AARP members and staff greeted AARP Board President Erik Olsen, Board Chair Joanne Disch, and CEO Bill Novelli.
Novelli spoke about Divided We Fail, AARP’s effort with the Business Roundtable and SEIU to get actions and answers from our elected leaders. He talked about the goal of lifetime financial security for all Americans, as well as how we can sign the pledge, which you can do here.
Then, Brian Williams introduced Kirk and Michael Douglas, the dynamic Hollywood father-son team. They talked about religion, life, their personal family history and the power of the father-son relationship. The quote of the day from 91-year old Kirk Douglas,”I don’t know if I am too young or too old to be a member of AARP.” AARP CCO, Tom Nelson responded, “You’re just right.”
Here are some pictures:
Also, a spy reports that Catherine Zeta Jones is here with Michael. And she looks amazing!
