On this page Bristol U3A members can find links to all sorts of information about their Executive Committee and how their branch is run; important documents such as our Constitution and our Policies; and (hopefully) everything Group Convenors need to know in order to run their groups successfully.
The Executive Committee and other posts
Details of this year's Committee and some of the other U3A members and their roles. You can email many of them directly from this page. Don't be shy - if you have experience or skills that may be useful to the Bristol U3A contact one of the Committee members. Think about shadowing/assisting one of the Committee members or post holders.
Bristol U3A Documents and Policies
This page contains links to our Constitution, our code of Conduct for Trustees, and to our policies, including Data Protection and Safeguarding.
Here you will find information about starting a new group, how to use the Beacon system, guidance on group expenses and much more.
Bristol U3A Archives
Bristol U3A began in the summer of 1983, and we have an almost complete set of records dating from the start. These have been deposited in Bristol Archives (formerly Bristol Record Office) in B Bond Warehouse, Smeaton Road, Hotwells, and can be viewed by anyone interested in the history of our organisation.
IT and other Equipment
Bristol U3A owns a number of laptop computers and digital projectors, as well as some sound equipment, which are available for use by our groups. A recent audit has identified where everything is. There are a couple of rather elderly laptops currently not in use, so if your group could make use of one, please contact one of the Committee members.
U3A Events outside Bristol
For U3A events outside Bristol, please go to the National U3A website. You can also sign in to their website and get access to a wealth of information. This is where you can order your U3A diary.
