How to get replacement committee members by Lynn Moore, Chair of Brixham U3A
‘The time has come,’ the Chairman said,
‘To talk of many things:
Of trusteeships – and Treasurers
Of committees – and AGM’s –
And why the tea is boiling hot –
And whether seats have wings.’

‘But wait a bit,’ the Members cried,
‘Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out all day,
And all of us are busy!’
‘We worry!’ said the Secretary
There isn’t time for that.

‘A Treasurer,’ the Chairman said,
‘Is what we chiefly need:
Chair and Secretary besides.
Time is short indeed –
Now, if you’re ready, Members dear,
We need you to take heed. ’

‘The AGM is looming,’ the Chairman said,
‘And all of you are nice:
Committee roles are vacant
Need we ask you thrice? –
So volunteer, for end of year,
Or ask for our advice. ’

Lynn Moore
