Gif Intlekofer, Leader

Guided by a Steering Committee, Elderhostel’s Lifelong-Learning Institute at Charlestown (ELLIC) provides outstanding learning opportunities for Charlestown residents by encouraging the talented members among us to share their knowledge and expertise and by bringing exceptional professional presentations to our campus. Modeled from hundreds operating nationally, our ELLIC offers continuing education for retirees through a wide variety of classes, musical and theatrical entertainment, trips, tours, and more.

The Steering Committee consists of a Moderator, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, Registrars and Auditorium Support, Catalog, Communications, Curriculum, Membership, Registrars, and Technical Support Chairs.
