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.
