Welcome To The New ILR Website
Since its formation in 2005, the ILR has grown to over 800 members and 12 or 13 course offerings each semester. Along with this growth have come challenges in managing the member list and class registrations each semester. In order to continue providing the best possible experience for ILR members, and to preserve the sanity of the Registrar and Treasurer, the ILR Board has decided to implement a new computer system. This new website is the portion of the new system visible to members. We sincerely hope that you will find it more convenient and friendly than our old system.
Here are a few tips for navigating the new website:
What is ILR?
The purpose of the ILR is to provide a broad range of educational opportunities for the residents of SaddleBrooke. No tests, no grades, no papers - just a group of people getting together to learn something new. ILR course leaders are SaddleBrooke residents who have knowledge or expertise in certain areas and a desire to share that knowledge with others. The ILR is member-driven and is dedicated to providing an environment that leads to lively discussion and interaction on topics of interest to its members.
The ILR offers two sessions of courses each year: one in the fall, and one in winter/spring. Courses usually last 5 or 6 weeks, depending on the topic, and meet once a week for 2 hours. This allows ample opportunity for discussion and interaction among the participants. The quality, scope and presentation of each course are directed by the ILR Board of Directors. A wide variety of topics is presented in an attempt to cover many areas of interest to residents.
After paying a one-time membership fee of $25, members can enroll in as many individual courses as are offered, for a very modest fee per course (typically $15) to cover the cost of materials and audio-visual aids.
