"Every state is aging... There are simply no Benjamin Button states" – Nancy LeaMond

By 2030, one in four Americans will be over the age of 50, and the 65+ population will double to 72 million. This massive demographic shift will have profound implications for every sector and every major institution in America. The growing population of older workers and retirees represents a transformative force, expected to account for more than half of the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) by 2032, and a net national asset—a fast-growing contingent of active, productive people who are working longer and taking the American economy in new directions.

Nancy LeaMond, Executive Vice President for AARP’s State & National Group, will discuss how the aging of America has already started to reshape society, and she will touch on the major challenges and opportunities that come with an older population.  Ms. LeaMond is a national thought leader and expert on issues related to older Americans.  In her role at AARP, she has responsibility for driving a social mission on behalf of the organization’s 38 million members.

Ms. LeaMond leads government affairs and legislative campaigns for AARP, widely seen as one of the most powerful advocacy operations in the country. And she oversees public education, community engagement, and volunteerism and service. She manages a team of 650 staff and more than 17,000 volunteers across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
