Wed Jan 26th The East of England Regional Support Team would like to invite you to a zoom meeting:
Treasurers’ Peer Support Discussion Forum
Wednesday 26th January 2022 from 10am – 12pm

As requested by our members we offer a Peer Support Discussion Forum for treasurers and any other committee members who wish to attend, within our region. This will be chaired by Beryl Shepherd, a member of the u3a Finance Team, and will give all attendees the opportunity to raise issues for clarification by Beryl and discussion generally about financial matters within the u3a movement. Questions in advance welcomed.

If this is successful we plan to continue with Peer Support for Chairs, Secretaries, etc if there is a demand.

There is no charge, but advance registration is required. To register please complete the booking form using this link:-
