About Us

Collective Commitments became a 501(c)(3) in 2016. It is a social enterprise club intent on finding public service projects that benefit Mainers and are ones where our talents can make a difference. Each year, we recruit new members who can contribute to our goal that year.

We became a local chapter for Aging 2.0 in 2018 and remain one today.Aging2.0 is considered the global premier resource for networking people and linking them to a knowledge repository of technology and innovation within the global Longevity Economy.

In 2019, Ms. Pinto was appointed to serve as the AARP Volunteer State President for the state of Maine. AARP Maine has over 230,000 members. She will maintain this position until December 2021 and perhaps beyond.

AARP Maine’s Volunteer State President works in collaboration with the State Director to further the Association’s vision, mission and strategic priorities in many areas including retirement security, health care, long-term care, and age-friendly communities.
