NEXT MEETING - 30th January 2019, Durham Indoor Bowling Club, 10:00 for 10:30 start Durham Indoor Bowling Club

Papers available (see sidebar and below, together with reports as on Previous Regional Meetings page,)
So far:-

The committee has decided not to have an EGM at this meeting. We were to vote on a new constitution but this is not ready as the Trust has brought out a new sample constitution, available in January, which may be relevant. The latest draft constitution the committee has produced is on the Committee page for you to comment on.

The cost for the meeting is £2.00 for entry and £5.00 for Lunch.

If you are attending please could you contact me Jane Mathieson (click the name to send an email), for food numbers. Please inform me of any special dietary requirements.

Agenda and paperwork will follow early January.

Hope to see you there.

Jane Mathieson
Regional Business Secretary


Questionnaire about General Meetings

The committee would appreciate your input into how the General Meetings are formatted.

Out of the 51 U3As in the area only about 50% ever attend, usually the same representatives.

We feel these meetings are for the membership to discuss points & find out more information that is relevant to them, so we would like your feedback by 27th January 2019, to be then discussed at the General Meeting on 30th January 2019.

Please download the questionnaire, which is in Word format so that you can edit it, and then return it to the email address shown therein:

Regional Questionnaire
