A Wealth of Ideas

Take a thorough look through the offerings available to you this spring/summer term. I’m sure you will be amazed at the range of tremendous topics and wonder how we always come up with such a wealth of ideas. That is mainly due to the diligence of the coordinators who volunteer their time and expertise to the programs. I also credit those members who are more and more willing to take the next step and present sessions of interest to our group. Having this abundance of experiences, skills, and knowledge close at hand is a wonderful resource for CVLR. Our fine membership and spirit of volunteerism make our organization supreme!

Steps to Register for Spring/Summer Classes and Trips

1. Do not renew your membership if you renewed it last fall.

2. Select the classes and trips that you want and list them in order of priority.

3. Write a separate check for each class or trip before in-person registration. Having your check ready will speed up the process.

4. Split your sign up for classes and trips with limits with another CVLR member. That way you are both more likely to get the offerings
you want.

5. Print out and review the layout of registration to determine your course of action at registration.  Find it on the How to Register page.l

6. Register in person Wednesday, February 27. You may also register for one other person. Use that person’s membership number and name when registering for him or her.

7. Attend in-person registration if at all possible. Since we operate on volunteer effort, your participation at in-person registration takes pressure off our volunteers. If you absolutely cannot attend, then mail in your registration. In-person and mail-in are the ONLY two ways to register. In-person registrations get priority over mail-in registrations.
