COVID Update 8/22/21: Out of concern for the safety of OLLI members, instructors and staff, OLLI classes, activities and events, including SIGs, will continue to take place online during fall term. One-on-one tech support for Zoom is available from OLLI member volunteers for those needing training or a brush up. Contact the OLLI office at or 541-552-6048 for help.

SIG members decide when to meet.

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 would like to start a "virtual SIG," contact the SIG Coordinator, Barb Barasa, by email at or phone 541-552-9349. OLLI volunteers are available to help you with technology.
