President's Message


Mike Stover

By Vickie Hite, President, OLLI-CSUF

It is 2024 and OLLI is celebrating 45 years of Lifelong Learning. During those 45 years we were able to make the adjustments necessary to move our organization forward with creativity and amazing vitality. This is a great time to take stock of all that we have accomplished and to look toward the future and the continued success of OLLI at CSUF.

As we continue to move forward, we have some unique opportunities to create a stronger version of ourselves. Patsy Burns served OLLI well during her long tenure here, and now we look toward spending quality retirement time with her. We are fortunate to have found in Daisy Thomas, our new Executive Director, a leader with a rich background and amazing energy. We also have the opportunity to tap into a Board of Trustees that has more new members than we have experienced in several years.

We can expect to see forward-moving changes this year as we continue to work on our goals of long-term growth, member retention and an updated business model to attract the next generation of OLLI members.

While I envision change and growth within our organization, I feel it is important to ensure that our culture and mission of lifelong learning is respected and upheld.

As your new president, I am looking forward to a year of great personal growth for myself and the opportunity to work with our new Board and Executive Director as we all move toward OLLI's next 20 years.
