Special Events

“Encore Learning allows me to view exhibits that I might otherwise not see. It makes available courses that keep me up to date with world events and makes me realize every day why life is great in Arlington.” — Nancy Etkin

“I enjoy an intellectual climate that’is not otherwise available. I try to take two classes and participate in two clubs every semester. I also enjoy all the Monday afternoon seminars at the central library.” — Douglas First

Our year-round Special Events include “Encore Learning Presents” public lectures and documentary films, co-sponsored with Arlington Public Library. In addition, we offer members-only group tours for some of the hardest-to-get tickets in town – new museum exhibits, private embassy tours, historical buildings, and more.

Only Encore Learning members may register for Special Events, except the “Encore Learning Presents” series, which are free and open to the public.  Many member-only events are also free, although some may require ticket, entrance or other fees. Check event listings for details.

Special Events Committee

The Encore Learning Special Events Committee works year round with other organizations to prepare special events for members.

Suggestions from members for future places of interest are always welcomed by the Special Events Committee as the greater Washington area is a treasure trove of opportunities, some of which—such as embassy visits—are otherwise normally private.

For more information, contact the Encore Learning office at 703-228-2144 or info@EncoreLearning.net.
