1. Front desk : To record the attendance of members & deal with membership issues and be the initial contact for visitors. Request and distribute any handouts required. To support the maintenance of the membership records.
2. Meeters and Greeters : on arrival welcome visitors and new members to the U3A. Be available to answer any questions bot on arrival and in the Hall during tea after the speaker has finished. And encourage them to participate in the U3A by supporting the RUGs and initiate new interest groups.
