Please Serve on an Osher Committee
Committees are a critically important function of Osher. We are always looking for members to serve on a committee. If you have an interest or skills in membership development, event planning, marketing, programming, leadership or communications, this is a great way to shine. Committee chairs love volunteers who have some background in the type of work the committee does, and we will happily train those interested in learning something new. For new committee members, we have a mentoring process to help integrate volunteers into the function of each committee.
