If you want to get involved with the University, joining an OLLI committee is a wonderful way to make this happen. OLLI is a volunteer organization that depends on the involvement of its membership to function and grow. We are looking for individuals that would like to lend their skills to the day-to-day administration of classes, and to planning courses, activities, and publications.
Five OLLI committees currently exist, and they are...
Membership Committee – Assists in developing membership recruitment activities, including the organization and promotion of open houses. Committee members are responsible for greeting OLLI members at meetings and special events, and for calling new members to welcome them to OLLI.
Marketing Committee – Assists the OLLI marketing coordinator with developing a marketing plan, marketing pieces and choosing the appropriate media to market OLLI. Also provides input into ways to promote OLLI to the community.
Curriculum Committee – Develops ideas for courses, lectures, computer workshops, discussion groups, field trips and travel. Identify instructors from CSUDH faculty, community experts, and OLLI members. Develop class schedules for fall, spring and winter trimesters.
Publications Committee – Publishes the OLLI catalog each trimester and updates the OLLI website as needed.
OLLI Ambassador Committee – Assists with special events, reminder phone calls, special mailings, survey reviews, member recruitment, etc. Committee members will support OLLI instructors in class and represent OLLI at designated South Bay events.
Other skills are needed and everyone brings valuable knowledge and experience to the organization. Look for calls for volunteers, or call our OLLI office at 310.243.3208 to say that you are interested in becoming an OLLI volunteer.
