What is an OLLI Shared Interest Group?
A Shared Interest Group is a group of OLLI Members who have a common interest. Shared interest Groups (SIG) get together at a location of their choosing on their own schedule, determine their own content and events, set their own directions, and exist as long as there is interest. Learning can be formal or informal and flexible, including meeting to share experiences. At this time we have 4 interest groups being started. Sign up for those that interest you, information on the first meeting will follow. (Persons must be a current OLLI member to participate, there are no additional fees for SIGs)
- Participation on Committees - Curriculum, Development, Forum, Promotion, Reception & Welcome, Social
- Class Assistant - take roll, assist with handouts, call students, act as liaison, etc.
- Facilitator - lead discussions, may/may not have set content.
- Instructor - teach a course.
Leadership and volunteer roles are flexible. Please contact Diana S. Lockridge
