The Curriculum committee and the Membership/Social committee are looking for new members!
Osher at CMU was built by a group of volunteers who put time and effort into creating a life-long learning environment. Volunteers laid the stepping-stones for future courses and events to be successful. Now there is an opportunity for new volunteers to step in to support our wonderful program and continue the path to a fruitful organization! Please consider joining one of the following committees:
- The Curriculum Committee establishes our wonderful slate of courses each term with a mixture of new and returning courses.
- The Membership/Social Committee executes special events that welcome new members and entertain established members throughout the year.
Please read more detailed descriptions below. If you believe you’d be a great asset to either team, and that your talents will be a valuable addition to the committee, we encourage you to fill in a volunteer application!
