Member Handbooks

Posted on December 11th, 2009 by Anne Cardale, OLLI National Resource Center

Dick Dahlberg, OLLI at University of California, San Diego Asks OLLI:

We are looking at revising our member handbook and are looking for some good examples from some of the other OLLI’s. Does anyone have a member handbook they are willing to share?

  3. We have a great handbook that we use for our memebrs and then insert 4 pages and use it for our instructors. Cheap to print also! Just email me and I can send you a copy.

    You can see a pdf of the entire Member Handbook for OLLI at George Mason University via our website: Click on “Publications” in the Quick Links and scroll down to the Member Handbook. We revise it annually and distribute a hard copy to all new members.

  5. Dick,
    Our Member’s Handbook is also online. You can find it at and click on the OLLI Members’ Page.
