London Region of U3As

Delegates

What's 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 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 on issues of common interest (one vote per U3A)
