Thu Jun 16thMeetingMembers need to be aware that the Annual General Meeting of our u3a branch will take place prior to the monthly meeting on Thursday 16th June. It will be held at the start of the meeting and usually takes only a few minutes, prior to the Speaker beginning his talk.

Under our constitution, there are certain matters to deal with, as you would expect, such as Annual Accounts, Chairman's Report and the like. This year several officers and current committee members have completed their 3 years in post so there will need to be elections. We will be asking for nominations in mid-May via a separate e-mail notification to each member. Please look out for this. Any resolutions being proposed by your Committee will be circulated at the same time to give members the chance to examine them and consider responses at the AGM.
