Final Notification of WU3A AGM

The following notification will have been sent to all members by post or email by 2nd May 2022. The documents can be found on the AGM 2021-22 page.

Dear member of WU3A,

This is the formal and final notification to inform you that we propose to hold the 28th Annual General Meeting of the Warrington U3A on Wednesday 1st June 2022. This will cover the events of the year 2021/2022. The meeting will be held at Winmarleigh House in Warrington starting at 2.00pm. It will be necessary for at least 106 members to be present to form a quorum for this meeting. If the meeting is not quorate within 30 minutes of the stated start time, it will have to be postponed. The meeting will then be held on zoom about ten days later and will be quorate with the number of members attending.

The documents for consideration at this meeting are as follows: the Agenda for the meeting, the Chairman’s Annual Report, the Treasurer’s Annual Report, the Minutes of the previous AGM, and the audited accounts to year ending 1st April 2022. Copies of these are attached and can also be found on the WU3A website on a password protected page. The password can be found on your current membership card. Please note that paper copies of these documents will NOT be available at the meeting.

The names of members standing for election / re-election to the Executive Committee are listed on the Agenda. Since there are fewer nominations than the constitution allows, there will not need to be a competitive ballot. The committee will, therefore, be elected on a simple show of hands. The same method will be used for the acceptance of the audited accounts and for the appointment of the auditor for next year. If unopposed, these proposals will be recorded as passing nem. con. (nemine contradicente, none speaking against) and will not require the votes to be counted. No motions for discussion at the AGM have been received. The Treasurer’s report indicates the reasoning behind the committee’s decision to hold the membership fee for the next year (i.e. payable for September 2022) to £30, the same as for this year. Since no increase is proposed, this will not require a vote.

After the AGM there will be a talk from a visiting speaker and the usual refreshments. I very much hope to see you there.

Ian Lancaster
Outgoing Chairman, Warrington U3A
