2018 AGM

This year's AGM will soon be upon us.

This will be an important meeting for OUR U3A.

A number of our committee members will be retiring together with at least two Group Leaders and you are already be aware we urgently need a new Secretary and Chairman.
So unless we get new committees members, replacement group leaders and key officers, I cannot see how our OUR U3A can continue, at least in its present form.

Hence we are making a change to arrangements for the 2018 AGM.

It will be held at 10 am on Thursday 15thNovember in Gosforth Public Hall, prior to the Open Mind meeting.

Please make every attempt to attend, whether or not you stay for the Open Mind meeting, and think hard about becoming a committee member and persuading others to put their names forward.
