The Way Forward
An amalgamated PowerPoint Presentation has been put together from 3 National Office PowerPoint presentations. It is called The Way Forward. It covers the Recruitment and Retention Toolkit, u3a Day and social media. This presentation lasts about 45 minutes and can be presented to Committee Members (or other groups) and then discussed. There is a crib sheet available that works alongside the presentation. Approximately 10 u3as have already received this presentation. It has also been shown to Regional u3a. If anybody wants to receive this PowerPoint presentation, please contact Cecilia Coulson.
