auditoriumMVILR members pay an annual membership fee, elect officers, and provide stimulating educational opportunities for themselves and their peers in the community. Courses are planned and led on a volunteer basis by our own members and invited guest speakers, and vary in length from a day to eight weeks. Members may enroll in a minimum of three courses per session and sign up for additional classes where seats are available. They receive the MVILR catalog, plus newsletters, E-news and invitations to social events, lectures, and field trips. Members also receive a SUNY/MVILR membership card, which is to be worn on campus.

Membership may be established or renewed at any time.  If you would like to join the mailing list, or know someone who would be interested, please send us an email.
