Membership in the Association entitles you to attend general meetings, to participate in recommending courses and to attend any of the courses offered (subject to class-size limitations) in any location.
Three terms of courses are offered – fall, winter and spring – and classes meet once per week for about two hours over a period of six weeks. These courses are designed for your learning enjoyment without tests or exams. There is no additional cost for taking courses beyond the twelve month membership fee
