Learning In Retirement
Announcements & Reminders
If you are an LIR member and have not received the January 2015 Newsletter or if you are not a member and would like to join our organization, please contact the LIR office. Note that the office is closed until January 5 for winter break.
With winter upon us, it is time for a reminder of our weather related cancellation policy. Please note that the policy regarding LIR trips is different than the policy for meetings, clubs and classes.
Cancellations-Inclement Weather Policy: LIR membership meetings, classes and clubs will be cancelled due to snow or other inclement weather conditions if the Jefferson City Public Schools are not in session (weather related). Local radio and television stations that allow community cancellations will be notified along with one or more of the following: posted on the LIR website; an "ALERT" group email to all members with email address; and/or a call tree. Education Travel trip cancellations occur ONLY when the contracted coach company cancels the trip due to their determination of highway safety. Travelers are contacted individually should a cancellation occur.
The winter (January) general membership meeting is scheduled with a make-up date, typically the same day/time during the following week at the same location. Length and content of meeting will be adjusted to accommodate the make-up situation. In the event that a second weather related cancellation occurs for the membership meeting, a business meeting ONLY will be held within one week of the cancelled meeting. Place & time to be determined.
The annual $40 membership fee for existing members is due in January and covers the entire calendar year, January through December. First time members who join LIR after June 30th, will be assessed a $25 fee which will cover membership through the end of the current year.
Membership information is available on this web site and within the bi-annual newsletter, The Learning Times.
If you have any questions on courses offered by LIR, please contact Carol Ellinger, Chairman of the Curriculum Committee, at 893-2331 or the LIR office at 681-6152.
