Group Leaders information

This page is for York U3A Group Leaders; to provide communication and resources to help you to manage your Groups.

If you have questions or additional information you would like to see here, please contact the Groups Co-ordinator.

Group Leader Meetings

The next meetings are scheduled for:

Thursday 2nd April, 1.00 pm
Monday 20th April, 1.00 pm

Invitations will be sent to all Group Leaders in advance with a request for agenda items and an indication of which meeting you plan to attend. If you are not able to attend, perhaps another member of your group might like to take the opportunity to find out a bit more about Group Leadership.

Please contact the Groups co-ordinator, if you are not a current leader and would like to attend.

Accidents / Incidents

An incident report form, link on this page, should be filled in by the group leader and passed to the Groups co-ordinator. This will be retained on file by the committee in case of a future claim for damages, which can be up to 3 years later.

You are not required to have a trained first aider, so insurance advice is to contact the emergency services immediately in the event of a serious incident, even if there happens to be a member present who has attended a first aid course.

Would you to edit your own group page or run your own website?

Each group details page will be updated as needed by the Webmaster, but group leaders can be given access to make their own changes if they wish - contact Webmaster for details. Or group leaders may wish to create your OWN website, in the style you prefer, which you can update yourself at any time. Several Groups have already done this, and details will appear on their group page.

Creating your own website is actually very easy - you would be surprised - and can be set up in an hour or less. You don't need to be computer programmer!

Occasional training sessions are run for Group Leaders who would like to try this out. (there is no cost for the training - or for having your own website!) So far over 20 Group Leaders have signed up. At the end of the sessions each Group Leader will have set up their own basic website for their Group (using GoogleSites) and linked it to this website. If you are interested, please contact Webmaster.
