National Resource Center
While the Foundation retains responsibility for all grant-making operations, the National Resource Center was created to serve as the connective tissue for communication between and among the Osher Institutes and to provide opportunities for professional development. It maintains a website for general reference (nrc.northwestern.edu)
and an extranet for Osher Institute network members. Additionally, the Center conducts national conferences for the Osher Institutes every 18 months. The ninth such conference was held in April 2014 at the Park Hyatt Aviara Hotel in Carlsbad, California.
