In response to our attendees’ requests to have the option to attend lectures in person, or online from home, the Board did a great deal of research. It was challenging to find a venue that met all of our needs for location, accessibility and technical expertise. We decided that Harcourt United Church has both the physical space and the experience and staffing we need, in this challenging area of hybrid lecture delivery.
Yes, our Policies and Procedures page lists how we handle such issues. These policies and procedures have evolved over time, in an effort to deal with situations consistently and fairly.
TALG’s Program Committee conducts an annual survey with registrants to determine current topics of interest. The committee also considers what topics have been covered in past years, and has access to suggested speakers lists through the Third Age Network of Ontario. If you have a suggestion for a topic or speaker, we’d love to hear it – please get in touch!
