Does your OLLI have a volunteer historian or archivist?

Posted on October 6th, 2011 by Anne Cardale, OLLI National Resource Center

Doug Fairbanks, OLLI at University of South Florida, Asks OLLI:

Does your OLLI have a volunteer historian or archivist who keeps track of the history of your OLLI? If so, and if you have a job description for that role that you are willing to share, please email it to Kyle Allen,

What records are you keeping? Does the historian/archivist produce a periodic historical summary kept in the OLLI’s permanent files?
