We need your ideas!

Do you know that some of the best programs, classes, lectures and trips offered by LifeLong Learning began when someone said, "What if we...."
 
PC Reads, the Sunday Series and TED Talks are among the programs that started with an idea. And many of our most successful speakers and teachers came from ideas suggested by residents.
 
If you have ideas about trips, classes and special programs, please send them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 
and we will send them to the appropriate team. See below for more specific ideas for lectures. 
 

Know a great speaker?

If you know of a great speaker who might be of interest to our community, the LLL Lecture Team would love to hear from you! Residents have recommended many speakers for Monday Morning and Premier Lectures. The LLL Lecture Team is always open to your suggestions.

See the speakers who were suggested by residents for this season.

Speaker-recommendation forms are available online and in the LLL Center. We ask for some basic information on the speaker you are recommending. 

When you have completed the form, you can SAVE the form as a PDF and then email it to Lorna Bray at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or PRINT it and bring it to the LLL Center. 

The lecture series has been a successful and enjoyable program, and would not be possible without the help of the PC community.

Here are some of the things we look for in a speaker:

Speaker Traits

  • Knowledgeable in area of expertise.
  • Engaging and dynamic with excellent speaking skills.
  • Previous speaking experience for the purpose of educating, inspiring, entertaining.
  • No political, philosophical or religious “agenda.” 

Topics

  • We are looking for educational topics that will challenge and stimulate attendees and open minds to new ideas or points of view.
  • We are open to lectures on a variety of topics.

To Show Our Appreciation

If a speaker you recommend (who is not already on our list) is engaged for a MML or Premier Lecture, we will offer you two free Premier Lecture tickets for Premier speakers and two free MML tickets for MML speakers during the fall or spring lecture season.
