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 Maine Volunteer State President. AARP Maine has over 200,000 members across the state. During this time she was focused on furthering the Association’s vision, mission and strategic priorities in many areas including retirement security, health care, long-term care, and supporting the work of its 71 Age Friendly communities.

She resigned this position in August 2021.

Beginning in September 2021, Ms. Pinto will focus on working directly with Maine's towns, cities and counties to access the once in a generation opportunity to address local level infrastructure needs as a result of accessing the American Rescue Plan Act. In this capacity she will continue her passion to help people 55+  to both Age in Place and be engaged civic-minded citizens.
