INDIANAPOLIS — AARP Indiana has selected a longtime volunteer from Fort Wayne as its next president.

The advocacy group announced the selection of Curt Sylvester on Tuesday.

AARP Indiana's president serves as the main volunteer spokesperson in the state, chairs the group's Indiana executive council and develops strategic plans and activities for the organization.
