On June 15, 2012, what great pleasure it was for me to meet for the first time in person —Rawle Andrews, Jr., Esq., Regional Vice President, AARP. In 2011, Mr. Andrews endorsed my book which became the number one bestselling book Why Wait? The Baby Boomer’s Guide to Preparing, Emotionally, Financially & Legally for a Parent’s Death, which is a guide for family caregivers and aging parents. We discussed donating the proceeds of Why Wait? to the AARP Hunger – Hungry Seniors in America.
Rawle Andrews Jr. is the regional vice president for AARP’s State and National Group. His duties include providing leadership and oversight of AARP’s operations and activities in the states of Michigan, Delaware, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

He was in private practice for 16 years before joining AARP in January 2007.
Mr. Andrews is a member of the District of Columbia Bar (2006 Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year Award), the Pennsylvania Bar, Phi Delta Phi International Legal Fraternity, and the Bar Association of the District of Columbia (board of directors). He is also active on several civic panels, including the Maryland Long-Term Care Reform Work Group; the Maryland Baby Boomer Initiative Council; and the Multi-Disciplinary Urban Gerontology Advisory Board at Morgan State University, as well as AARP’s State Advocacy Task Force and the Multi-State Utilities Campaign.
