Chairman’s Thoughts

One of the many advantages not often mentioned in the list of benefits gained from U3A membership is a building up or regaining of confidence.

If you're apprehensive about taking a more active part in your U3A why not just give it a try because you are among friends who will help and support you.

Remember that through being a member my confidence levels have increased enough to find myself Chairman of a whole U3A!

Thank you for accepting me.  Jenny

**********************

FORMING A GROUP

Are you satisfied with the content of the subjects covered?

If the answer is NO then we, the members, are deficient to a degree. If there is no group to cover the particular subjects that interest you then something CAN be done about it.

First and foremost we need a group of like-minded members to come together. These can be identified by someone putting an article in the newsletter or asking for an announcement at one of the monthly meetings. Then, simply arrange a get-together at a convenient location in order to discuss what is required and how you are going to achieve it. In particular, determine who is going to be the group leader.

I’m sure there is a considerable misconception on exactly what the duties of a group leader might be:

  • Do you need to teach the subject? NO
  • Does it need to take place in your home? NO
  • Do you need to have particular skills in your subject? NO

All the group leader has to do is to coordinate the activities of the group, ie. keep everyone informed of what is going on, together with where and when. It will be handy if the group coordinator (probably a better name than ‘leader’) has access to e-mail, as this is the cheap and convenient method of maintaining contact with group members, but of course there is always snail-mail & telephone to fall back on.

The subject of where to meet really depends upon the nature of the group; for instance it is little problem for a Bridge Group to rotate around members’ houses. Where a particular piece (or pieces) of equipment are required you may be limited to one particular home, or if numbers necessitate, you could hire one of the local community centres as a meeting place. Simplest of all is the likes of the Gardens Group who meet outside, at various locations, for their activity.

Whatever you choose, of course, has to be paid for, whether it be a local community hall, or the services of an outside tutor. In this we insist that each group be self-financing.
Our £18 annual membership fee could not possibly cover the necessary costs of every group.

So – if there isn’t already a group to meet your needs, please consider starting a new one. It is not difficult or time-consuming and indeed there is a great deal of satisfaction to be gained. If you would like to talk this through with the Groups Coordinator or one of the committee members, help is always at hand.
