Sorry I haven’t written in so long! I have been so busy at work.Huge deadline this week that staff has needed help for, so as an intern, I have had so much todo. I Was happy because they seemed pleased with my work and level of precision. It has been wonderful working through the health care process because we at AARP are external enough that we are not in the thick of it, but a huge player largely considered for direction in the policies. The dichotomy is that as a membership organization, we must always think about policy and political decisions as well as popularity of decisions with our membership. We have a weekly meeting where strategy is discussed and that has been fascinating to watch and be part of.
