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.
Our newsletters are published quarterly in March, June, September and December. Anyone can download them from the Newsletters page. There is also the members only issue which requires a password and includes additional contact information.

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.
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:
- The Constitution 2021 for everyone.
- Code of Conduct - Members for everyone.
- Safeguarding Policy for everyone.
- Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy for everyone.
- Code of Conduct - Trustees for Executive Committee Members.
- Finance Policy for Executive Committee Members, Group Leaders and any other person who handles money paid for u3a activities. This document was last updated in July 2019.
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.
