Asheville North Carolina's Center for Creative Retirement (UNCCCR) at the University of North Carolina Asheville has named Dr. Catherine A. Frank as its new Executive Director.
She has been serving as the Director of Duke University's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute for the past four years, and no doubt will bring much to this new role here in UNC Asheville.
If you'd like to meet Ms Frank, she will be the Guest Speaker at the center's Town Hall Meeting Wednesday, March 3, 2010 from 3-6pm at the center's Manheimer Room.
The North Carolina Center for Creative Retirement (NCCCR) is well utilized by seniors and older adults in Greater Asheville and Western North Carolina in general. It is an award-winning, internationally-acclaimed learning community dedicated to promoting lifelong learning, leadership, community service, and research.
The center first opened their doors in 1988 as a department of the University of North Carolina at Asheville (UNCA), and offers a comprehensive array of programs in the arts and humanities, the natural world, civic engagement, wellness, and more.
It is often cited as one of the reasons older adults who consider relocation in their later years choose Asheville North Carolina as their place to retire and purchase real estate here from all parts of the US.
Seniors, Retirees and Older Adults who are examining their newest chapter of their lives eagerly look forward to the yearly weekend programs devoted to this life transition, attending programs such as: Paths to Creative Retirement Workshop, scheduled for April 16-18, 2010 and again September 3-4, 2010 http://www2.unca.edu/ncccr/programs/paths/index.asp
The Asheville North Carolina Center will also host the Creative Retirement Exploration Weekend May 28 - 30, 2010, http://www2.unca.edu/ncccr/programs/crew/index.html
