ABOUT AMAC: The Association of Mature American Citizens (www.amac.us) is a vibrant, vital and conservative alternative to those traditional organizations, such as the AARP, that dominate the choices for mature Americans who want a say in the future of the nation. Where those other organizations may boast of their power to set the agendas for their memberships, AMAC takes its marching orders from its members. We act and speak on their behalf, protecting their interests and offering a conservative insight on how to best solve the problems they face today.
