CHAIRMAN’S END OF YEAR MESSAGE
Concerning though the news about HAC is, the U3A is more powerful than a building; our “Aims and Principles” is a strong enduring framework that has lasted 25 years already.
Yes HAC is convenient and provides a centre for us, despite its fading grandeur but the Alternative Venues sub-committee have been investigating other places where we could continue to function, aided by suggestions from members.
We are attempting to find out what happened to the donations that were made to Cultura, watch this space…
Speaking of adaptivity may I mention a study group that has coped with change. Literary Group 1 lost its highly skilled and valued tutor but have carried on using what they had learned, to become a “democratic” group. Holding hands is one way of running a group when there is no leader. There are books out there to consult and your committee are eager to support.
Although we are becoming more technologically skilled, there are a few members who don’t have computers/tablets/smart phones and miss out on news. Ask a computer literate friend to pass on relevant information. Find, or be, a “computer buddy” and come in from the cold.
Do you check our website? There is a lot of useful information on it both for your delectation and occasionally asking for help.
We have some splendid new leaflets and posters organised by Mike Allen. Please carry one with you to spread the word to prospective members. Research shows that “word of mouth” is the most effective way of recruiting new people. Do take your copy of TAM and leave it with the other magazines in the doctor’s or dentist’s surgery.
Please support your hardworking and highly valued Group Leaders by helping with the register or any other small task. Without their time and commitment our classes would not exist.
Lastly, can I repeat your committee’s invitation to come along to a meeting and see how we work or to have your say. We welcome new thoughts and fresh opinions.
I hope the festive season is a happy one for you all and we will gird our loins for the challenges of the New Year.
