Volunteers from OLLI at UNLV represented their program as well as the National Network at AARP’s Life@50+ conference, which was held May 30-June 1 in Las Vegas. The conference drew more than 8,000 participants from New York and Virginia, down to Texas and New Orleans, and throughout California. In addition to chatting up locals about the benefits of the OLLI at UNLV experience, they also encouraged hundreds of visitors that stopped by the table to contact their local OLLI office. Maps with each OLLI represented and bookmarks with the National Resource Center website will hopefully steer a few prospective members your way. “The opportunity to partner with the National office to showcase the benefits of our program on this scale is fantastic,” said Dr. Peg Rees, Director of OLLI at UNLV and Vice Provost of Educational Outreach. “Our goal was to have every attendee at the conference buzzing about their local OLLI, whether they live here in Las Vegas or are visiting from across the country.” OLLI at UNLV would like to thank the national office for allowing us to represent our amazing network and for all their support coordinating our AARP experience.
