Who is a member and what are the benefits of membership?
A member of Lifespring is any person who has completed the enrollment process for the current membership year, which runs from August 1 to July 31. Members may take courses for both semesters, and participate in Winter Presentations, special events, and any other activities.
How are new members admitted to Lifespring?
Lifespring makes every effort to take in as many new members as space and resources will permit. We are committed to welcoming new members in the fall of each year with the goal of keeping our organization refreshed and vital. Our goal has been to allow for smaller enrollments for some of the courses, spaces that are not overcrowded, and classes that foster quality discussions and creative learning. Because we are committed to offering some courses via Zoom, as well as in-person courses, our ability to expand the number of members who can participate in the Lifespring learning community has been significantly increased.
How do I apply for membership?
Please consult the current fall catalog, available now on this website, for detailed information about the benefits of membership, as well as information about our Covid policy for any in-person courses. The deadline to apply for membership for the 2022–2023 year is August 18th.
Membership is for a full year, August 1–July 31. Lifespring does not accept new members for the spring semester. If you would like to be notified by email when the catalog is online, please send an email to email@example.com asking to be placed on the notification/interest list.
How do I know that my membership enrollment has been received?
Each Lifespring enrollee will receive an email acknowledgement and receipt when the payment has been processed.
Members can experience a wide range of teaching styles including lecture, discussion, and hands-on participation guided by our presenters, all of whom are volunteers from academia, business, the arts, and public service. In order to foster a robust learning environment and encourage a sense of community that is comfortable and accommodating, all Lifespring members are expected to behave in a manner that is respectful and courteous, to arrive at their classes on time, to share class time with others and not dominate the question/comments process, and to comply with reasonable requests made by the instructor/presenter. At the discretion of the Board of Directors of Lifespring, continued violation of this policy may result in the loss of Lifespring membership.
