Get involved

U3A in Scotland needs your support

You will already have received notification that this year's AGM takes place in Stirling on the 18th June.

Since the initial notification went out, our current Secretary has decided not to stand for re-election to the committee. We therefore now have THREE vacancies on the Committee, one of which is for a Secretary.

Please give some thought to joining us; we must elect three people at the AGM in order to continue, four would be great! Membership of the committee is not an onerous task; you would be fully supported in whatever role you undertook and the experiences gained would be of great value to your 'home' U3A.

Places at the AGM are still available.

If you require further information about the role of the Committee, then please feel free to contact me via e mail or on 01890781517.
