WASHINGTON: AARP director of PR Lisa Davis is scheduled to change roles in July, becoming special counsel to the group?s chief communications officer and other executives.
Davis, AARP?s director of PR, said she decided in May to pursue the special counsel role, a new position, because of the opportunity to provide strategic advice to senior officials.
?As a communicator and a person in PR, new challenges are a great thing,? Davis said.
AARP is searching for a director of press relations and strategy to replace Davis. The organization decided to give the position a new title.
Davis, 43, has previously served as national deputy press secretary for the Clinton-Gore re-election campaign and as press secretary for the Democratic Leadership Council.
