MPORTANT INFORMATION Re 2020 AGM and status of Arun West U3A
Arun West U3A Annual General Meeting 2020
This meeting was scheduled for 22nd April 2020, but because of the Corona Virus Pandemic had to be postponed.
As soon as the Government, Third Age Trust, Charities Commission and, just as importantly, the Arun West Committee feel we can proceed a new date will be selected and the membership will be notified. Realistically, this is some way off and may not be this year.
Currently, in accordance with government guidelines, all formal U3A group activities are suspended although many groups are maintaining contact via Zoom, Social Media and the Internet. U3A insurance cover is suspended and anyone involved in any group meeting must be aware that it is not an official U3A sanctioned event and participants do so at their own risk.
At the AGM we would have presented the Chairman’s Report, the Treasurer’s Report and Accounts, dealt with Motions and Nominations for Committee.
The Annual Accounts have been prepared and audited and are now being submitted to the Charities Commission. The Accounts Summary and Treasurer’s statement can be seen by clicking here. Treasurer\'s Report 2020
Anyone wishing to see a copy of the full Accounts should contact the Chairman.
The Chairman’s Report is also here on the website. Click Chairman\'s Report 2020
A number of Committee posts became vacant during or at the year end as members completed their terms of office and I am pleased to say that most have been filled utilising the “casual vacancy” provision of our Constitution. All of these posts will be subject to confirmation as and when we are able to hold an AGM.
