Our OLLI volunteers are amazing, and we can’t thank them enough for their efforts in expanding our OLLI program. The Curriculum Committee, chaired by volunteers, researches course opportunities, recruits instructors and selects course proposals. If you have an idea for an interesting class, please be that volunteer who brings your idea to the Curriculum Committee. Contact Curriculum Co-chair Carroll Bewley, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Co-chair Fran Conaway, email@example.com.
Activities, clubs and field trips are provided by creative volunteers who have an area of interest and are willing to sponsor and manage these events. If you have a special interest, please let us know, and we will help you share it with other OLLI members! Contact 1st VP Jan Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The OLLI catalog and other OLLI information and promotion materials are designed, written and edited by volunteers along with the staff. Volunteers also consult on and execute public relations efforts in coordination with the director to promote membership and participation in OLLI. Have skills in this area? Let us know. Contact Communications and Marketing Committee Chair Fran Conaway, email@example.com. Volunteers also are responsible for philanthropic and fundraising campaigns. Look for information about ways YOU can help make OLLI even better in the near future! In addition, volunteers manage course and annual surveys, and derive data to support planning and operations. Members of the Advisory Council work throughout the year to plan for the future of OLLI. Class hosts assist our instructors to make classes run smoothly. All these volunteer efforts provide an amazing OLLI experience for you. And if you have any suggestions or ideas on expanding volunteer opportunities, or if you wish to volunteer for OLLI, please contact Harriet Waas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call for Class Hosts
If you’ve taken classes in-person in past semesters, you’re aware that one of the important ways OLLI welcomes new and returning OLLI members is by having a host for each in-person class. They greet students, make sure attendance lists are maintained, support instructors as needed, make announcements and serve as a conduit for messages from students to OLLI administration and leadership. Being a class host gives you the opportunity to get to know your classmates and provide an important service to them. Class host training will be Thursday, September 28, 11:00 a.m. at PeoplesSouth Bank, 2920 Kerry Forest Parkway. Ample parking is available. If you are interested or would like more information, contact Debbie Justice-Obley, DrDJO@yahoo.com.
Class hosts are needed for all in-person classes.
