INFORMATION

EALING U3A AGM 2019

Our AGM is coming up on Thursday 21st March 2019. As well as reports from the Chairman and Treasurer, that day will also include elections to the new Committee for the next year. As our Constitution requires that some members of our current Committee need to step down, we do need new people to stand for election.

Forms to nominate members to stand for the Committee will be available at the weekly meetings from Thursday 20th February – these require the signature of the Proposer, a Seconder and the person being Nominated (to confirm they are willing to stand). There is also space on the form for the Nominee to give some brief details about themselves, so that members can be aware of their background and skills. Click here - Nomination form - to download a copy of the form.

Nomination forms must be returned to any existing Committee member by Thursday 14th March.

NB. To vote in the election of the new Committee, you must attend the weekly meeting on Thursday 21st March where the AGM will be followed by a talk on ‘Homeless People’ from The Friends of the Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields.

THURSDAY MORNING TALKS - NEW ORGANISER

The committee is very glad to report that Marie Todman has agreed to take up the role of organiser of the Thursday morning talks for 2019 - a highly important, demanding task - with some assistance from George Martin. If you have any ideas for future talks and speakers, please contact Marie or John Moore, Chairman

Marie takes over from Yvonne Hughes who has provided a wonderful range of speakers for 2017 & 2018 but must now relinquish this role. Yvonne in turn took over from Rosemary Richardson who had managed this task over several years, and we thank both Rosemary and Yvonne for the excellence in their work.

CARING FOR OUR MEMBERS; A MESSAGE FROM JOHN DEIGHTON:

The Committee is very aware that many of our members live alone and, like us all, are ‘getting on in years’. I have been keeping in touch with members who are sick or house-bound, either by telephone or by sending a card. I do need to know who is sick so that I can carry out my job: so if people contact me I will take it from there.
