An OLLI Shared Interest Group (SIG) is a group of OLLI members who share a common interest and meet outside the normal OLLI class environment to discuss and enjoy this mutual interest. Each group is different depending on its focus, and all provide interesting lifelong learning opportunities as well as a fun social experience.
OLLI SIGs are independent and self-managed with the SIG members deciding when, where, and how often they will meet. Initially, one or more members volunteer to be facilitator(s). The facilitator is responsible for administrative and communication details.
If you have group of members that want to start a new SIG, contact the SIG Coordinator, Barb Barasa, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 541-552-9349.
