New Constitution

THE NEW CONSTITUTION

At the 2015 AGM we agreed a new Constitution for Up Holland & District U3A. which came into force at the AGM in May 2016. A copy of this is available from the Secretary.

All members of the current Management Committee are required to resign at every AGM. They are available to be re-elected if they so wish and the members elect them.

However, in the next one or two years there will be a need to replace several members of the Committee who will be timed-out under the constitutions. We must not get to the point where virtually all members of the Committee need to be replaced at the same time. We need members to join the committee so as to ensure continuity.

The Committee have produced a booklet describing the roles of the various officers and members of the Committee, and these are available at the Publicity Desk. There is also information about the roles of members of the Committee available on the National website. In addition, approach any member of the Committee and we will be happy to answer any of your questions.

We all need to think very carefully about the operation of the Management Committee and to consider how everyone can contribute to the important task of developing our U3A over the coming years.

Mo Eccles, Chair 2016-17
