The Ask OLLI blog is a resource for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
administrators to facilitate discussion on a variety of topics related to the creation and management of OLLI institutes nationwide.
Entries to the blog are called "posts" and can only be submitted by blog editors. Please contact Anne Cardale at the OLLI National Resource Center if you have an article suggestion for the AskOLLI editors.
Each post has a "comment" section where blog subscribers can submit their own remarks and
responses to the post. A subscriber must be logged in to comment on a post. A login link is available at the bottom of the right-hand
column, as well as at the end of each posting page.
Although the Ask OLLI blog is publicly viewable, commenting is closed to non-subscribers. For more information on Ask OLLI, or if you wish to create a subscriber account please contact Anne Cardale.

Ann Nikolai, OLLI at CSU Chico, Asks OLLI: Do you have an OLLI survey that you have used to build your case for fundraising, etc.?
We plan to survey our membership at CSU Chico to answer the question: “What does OLLI mean to you?” While there will be other data we also want to collect, we’re ultimately wanting to build themes, etc. for our case statement and we want to really dig down into the meaning of OLLI for our membership.
Do you have an OLLI survey that you are willing to share?
Please send copies of your survey to Ann Nikolai at CSU Chico and Anne Cardale at the OLLI National Resource Center. (The NRC will post these survey examples on the national website.)
