AGM Wednesday 2nd June 2021

This year's AGM was held on Zoom. Thank you to all the members who joined us on the day and to those who could not attend but submitted their votes to Deborah prior to the meeting. This ensured we had a quorum and the meeting could proceed. The newly adopted Constitution is available in the Documents area along with the Trustees Report.

The u3a ethos

The u3a is not a service-provider. It is a mutual aid organisation to which everyone is expected to contribute. Its success depends on the willingness of members to volunteer and help out in whatever way they can by:

  • starting new groups
  • giving talks
  • assisting in the running of a group
  • participating actively in the groups they join
  • becoming a committee member
  • doing other tasks to assist the smooth running of the Evesham u3a.

Privacy

In order for you to benefit from u3a membership, certain information - e.g. your name and contact details - has to be made available to the organisation. Following the introduction of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018, all members will, on the membership form, be asked to consent to the use, within our u3a, of their personal data held by us, and to share it with specified third parties as explained in our Data Protection Policy and Privacy Policy. You should be asked if you wish to appear in any photographs used to publicise or report on our u3a; be aware that you have the right to refuse.

Membership Conditions

It is a condition of membership that you abide by the Constitution, codes and policies of Evesham & District u3a where applicable to you, as defined below:

Grievance and Disciplinary Matters

It is expected that all members will treat others with courtesy and respect at all times. Where there are concerns, problems or complaints to be resolved, there is a Grievance Procedure. For breaches of any membership condition or similar matter there is a Disciplinary Procedure, as referred to in our Constitution.
