Pershore U3A Choir Christmas Concert

Committee Changes

Our AGM will be held on Tuesday, 19th November at 2pm at Number 8, immediately preceding the November speaker who will be thriller writer Philip Caine on the subject of 'Barrow to Baghdad and Back'. 

You will all be receiving papers prior to the meeting, but this is to let you know in plenty of time some of the changes taking place and roles which need to be filled.  

Barbara will be standing down as Chairman and we will be saying farewell to Lynn Glaze after 9 years faithful service as Treasurer, Membership Secretary and Newsletter editor.  

The following committee members will be seeking re-election: Jill Wilson, Mike Ainley and Sue Lavery.  Sue Hindley has been co-opted onto the committee and will offer herself for election.  She has taken on the role of  Befriending Co-ordinator and will concentrate on wellbeing issues. Glen Powell and Mary Greer have also agreed to join the committee. 

We are looking for new committee members to join our team.  We welcome nominations for the roles of the Principal Officers of the committee: Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer and Business Secretary.  There are also lots of other roles which might be of interest such as Newsletter Editor, Data Protection Officer and Monthly Meeting Speaker Co-ordinator.  The committee must contain at least 5 members up to a maximum of 10. 

Whilst experience of committee work would be helpful, it is by no means essential. What we are looking for is reliable, committed people with a sense of humour, an interest in the aims and objectives of the U3A and the ability to use a computer or tablet.

Data Protection Law Change
As you probably know the law on data protection changed on May 25th 2018. To incorporate the changes the committee have produced 3 documents - Data Protection Policy, Privacy Policy and a Legal Interest Assessment. These documents can be found on our Downloads page in the first section.
