New Members:  a snapshot of what we offer you


LLAIC is a Lifelong Learning organization in the Metro West area of Boston, Massachusetts (based in Wayland, previously in Wellesley, and Weston):  
We are about to start our fifth year, have over 300 members per semester, and have grown from 17 courses in our first semester to about 25. Membership is only $35 per semester, in line with our policy of keeping costs low to encourage broad membership. That policy applies to our course fees as well. 

Courses are our core “business”:
Spring 2019 courses will be open for registration on January 28. To see those from previous semester, click here

 ... and besides a diverse and exciting Course Program, we are pleased to offer ...
Stimulating speakers between morning and afternoon classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Current Events on Wednesdays, and selected events on other days.
  •  Social Groups and Events:
"Let's Go" - outings between and during semesters. Visit museums and other venues with new and old friends. The plan is to have one such outing per month.


For past Let's Go outings, visit our Events Archive

Theatre Outing Group: Dine and see a play with old and new friends.

"Out and About": A set of "meet and go" activity groups for all you enthusiasts who want to stay active and involved during the summer and beyond. If you have an idea you can help shape what your group does, where it goes, and even what it calls itself. Examples of active groups: the LLAIC Book Club, Movie Mavens, and a French conversation group Parlez-vous Français?

LILAC Players: The LILAC Players, your friends, colleagues and course leaders, read their parts while costumed and perform theatrical pieces.  For pictures of the LILAC PLAYERS in their Fall 2017 production, click here.
