MEET OUR CONVENING PANEL: INGRID MCDONALD

Ingrid McDonald serves as the Advocacy Director for AARP Washington, and is a key member of our Convening Panel.  Last year, she was an influential voice reminding folks on the Convening Panel that politics – for better or worse – are a central factor in how policy gets made.

She is a realist about politics, and understands that there isn’t a great idea out there that will get implemented on it’s own merits.  You need votes to get policy passed in the legislature – not just a good idea.  For a little more on Ingrid, read about her here, here, or here.
