WHAT’S IN STORE FOR 2015-2016?

As a CALL member, have you been wondering what’s in store for the new year?

The CALL website has the latest information on interest groups that started in the Fall and some new ones just created. The new year is a great time to carry on in the groups you’ve already joined and to try out some different and new ones too.

The very popular Treks and Travels and CALL Café continues, as well CALL is introducing a new lecture series, Science and the Environment  every month through to June. The Somar Speakers Series, CALL’s partnership with Mount Royal University, will continue throughout the year.

Registrations are limited and are accepted on a first-received, first-served basis. The registration for Interest Groups will see some changes this year as CALL continues to update its website and use the power of technology to help with the administration of both membership and registration.  As CALL relies entirely on volunteers for all its programming and administration it is trying to move forward using the tools available.

Almost all continuing groups, and all the new interest groups have room for new members, so plan on exploring some new subjects and experiences. Explore Calgary with the Urban Hiking Group, discover Opera, or take part in stimulating discussions.
