NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS! ***Read here the Agenda cum Notice SGM 230321***
Your committee is calling an Special General Meeting on 23 March 2021 at 10 a.m. to propose the adoption of a new updated constitution. This is the latest model advised by the Third Age Trust and the main changes deal with the following areas:

  • the holding of virtual general and committee meetings
  • the re-election of committee members for six years continuously with a further three years after a minimum year’s break (currently only the treasurer can continue for six years)
  • the delegation of some of the committee activities to ordinary members.
  • reduction of quorum from 20% to 10% at formal general meetings

Please read the proposed Ravenshead u3a Constitution 2021 and compare it with the current 2018 one which you can find on the Committee page
It would be great if the EGM could reach a quorum and complete the planned business on the 23 March without having to be adjourned. We urge all members to attend.
===========================
2020 proved to be a Challenging Year but we’ve been staying positive. We’ve been planning an increased level of online activity in 2021, with an expectation of the return of Physical Meetings in the latter part of the year.

Communication with the Elderly Keeping our Groups in touch with each other has been paramount for their cohesiveness, so we have been using technology such as Zoom, Skype, email and telephone.

All our physical meetings have had to be suspended for now, but the situation is under constant review by the committee.
