Our Committee

Details of the current Committee can be found on on the Contact page. You can email many of them directly from that page. Our committee consists of three elected officers - Chair, Secretary and Treasurer - with a maximum of another nine elected members and up to three co-opted members. All committee members are Trustees as required to meet the regulations concerning charitable status. Persons, who need not be York u3a members, may be invited by the Committee to attend meetings because of their special expertise. They are not Trustees and shall not have voting rights.

Want to get involved? If you have experience or skills to share, do get in touch. It is possible to shadow/assist one of the Committee members, as a way to get more involved. Current vacancies are shown from a link on the right.
