London Region of U3As

Delegates

This page gives information to support LRU3A Delegates in their role.
What is the Role of a Delegate?
Each U3A is invited to nominate two named Delegates to represent their interests at regional and national levels through active participation in the London Region of U3As.
The quarterly Delegate meetings are attended by the LRU3A Executive Committee and London Region Trustee, and Delegates from U3As across London. Other members may attend as observers/guests at the discretion of Executive Committee.
Participation in regional meetings offers opportunities to:
• Speak directly to Committee members, Regional Trustee and other Delegates
• Catch up on regional and national news
• Ask questions, make suggestions
• Discuss problems and exchange ideas about best practice
• Decide on and help to implement useful, cost-effective regional activities
• Listen to guest speakers
• Communicate with the Trust via the Regional Trustee
• Benefit from Trust funds for regional activities
• Support and promote U3A activities at a regional level
• Vote for Regional Trustee and other issues of regional interest (one vote per U3A)

A key aspect of above is communications. In July 2017 LRU3A conducted a survey to gauge how effective its communications channels were in getting information to all the London U3As. You can see the results here: Communications Survey Results 2017

Are You Getting the Best from Membership of the London Region of U3As?
This depends on the active participation of Delegates and other members of U3As across London. Please ask your Delegates to raise any points of interest or concern at one of the meetings or via the contacts page on this website. Please also make sure your Delegates are providing feedback from meetings, and passing on information about events and other opportunities.

To assist with communication, please the ensure the Committee is kept up to date with the names and contact details of your Chairs and Delegates, by emailing the Membership Secretary - see the CONTACT page.
