Volunteers Required

Your U3A needs you!

We have several roles that need to be filled either immediately or before May next year to ensure the smooth running of our U3A. Role descriptions for the management committee vacancies are available on the publicity desk. We are also looking at how we might support the committee roles with teams of people rather than one person having all the responsibility. If you are interested in finding out more about any of the roles below please speak to the member named next to the vacancy.

Vice Chair                       – contact Viv Newman.

Assistant secretary       –contact Beth Turton.

Meeters and greeters     –contact Jan Johnson.


General vacancies 

There are always jobs to be done within a purely volunteer organisation like our U3A. It is often difficult for members to know where they could help, so this page may give you some ideas, but don't forget you can simply offer your services to a committee member or group leader. New helpers are always needed, whether organising trips and groups or simply making tea or washing up. We all have some skill we can offer.

In the first instance, please contact Publicity or a Group Leaders Representative. The usual procedure is to open up a page for the new subject in the New Interest Groups book which is held on the Publicity Desk.  The proposed new group is advertised in the Newsletter and on the website and once a small nucleus of members indicates their interest, a meeting is held to arrange a meeting venue, dates, start times, the intentions of the group, and group leadership.  A leader does not have to be an expert in a subject, just be prepared to co-ordinate the requirements of the group as a whole.  

Remember - it is YOUR U3A so if you can take some responsibility within it you will improve it for everyone.
