LIR Volunteer Opportunities

Curriculum Committee – Mary Koski, Tom Mather and Fran Uteg are our Curriculum Co-Chairs.  Committee members act as liaison between the DCLIR Office and presenters to create each semester's classes. Committee Members research class ideas and contact presenters. Before class start date, Coordinators keep in contact with the office and assist the presenters to share course handouts, send reminders to registered participants, set up classroom, take attendance and handle course feedback. 

Finance Committee – Oversees the financial matters of the organization.

Social Committee – Plans and oversees social events for DCLIR members including the Holiday Event and the Annual Meeting.  We are hoping to hold these events in person in 2022. 

Membership Committee – Welcoming new members and promoting Door County Learning in Retirement in the community by preparing informational flyers, newspaper advertisements and radio talk shows. 

Other volunteer opportunities may include help with clerical tasks in and around the office: mailings, proofreading, putting together gift bags or handbooks, taking a shift during registration assistance days and of course as a presenter - share your knowledge and experience by presenting a learning opportunity for others. The planning and presentation of the entire DCLIR program is as enriching as the course offerings.                                        

Please do not hesitate to get involved - you'll be glad you did!
