About WyLLA

The Wyoming Lifelong Learning Association is the one organization in the state for those involved in lifelong learning.  The association brings together a diverse array of people which enables one to be exposed to a variety of resources via the networking process among the membership.

This networking is important in a state such as Wyoming where many in the field of lifelong learning are somewhat isolated and feel they are "all alone out there".

The Association provides an annual conference for the sharing of ideas and new trends in the field.  There is also a newsletter published four times per year to assist you to keep the membership up to date with what is going on in Wyoming regarding lifelong learning.

The Association's annual conference focuses on new trends and in-service education.  It also provides a forum to promote networking within a social setting. Do you want to gain or share expertise in the area of Lifelong Learning?  Why not join WyLLA today?

In order to achieve these goals, WyLLA promotes and develops lifelong learning in the State of Wyoming by affording opportunities for professional and non-professional adult educators to enhance their competencies.  The Association gathers and then disseminates pertinent information about lifelong learning at the annual conference and through the publishing of the WyLLA newsletter four times a year.  The www.wylla.org website is updated regularly and provides a way to pose questions, exchange ideas, and provide information to members.
