CHAIRMAN’S AUTUMN MESSAGE
Well, the Harrow Arts Centre Saga continues…. we seem to be safe for the coming academic year and all the bookings are being processed. On a positive note, I hope you have heard about our new Premises Officer who has been co-opted onto the committee until he can be formally elected next March. His name is Lewis Farrugia, he is a Maths whizz and he has taken on the role with great attention to detail.
The committee has decided to suspend the policy of not publishing obituaries in the Newsletter. As Alan Klein was a founding member of Harrow U3A, such a powerhouse in its running and a tremendous friend to so many, you will find a tribute to him in the latest issue. He is greatly missed.
I am pleased to see that the list of RUMs is growing. These are “Really Useful Members” who are willing to help with occasional jobs such as register keeping, proof reading the newsletter or setting up the microphone. We have also had some visitors to the committee meetings. Their opinions are very useful and it helps us to feel we are not working behind closed doors. You will see in the newsletter a notice about two posts that will fall vacant next March. Anyone thinking of taking on these roles will therefore have plenty of time, by ‘shadowing’, to talk about it and experience the role before taking responsibility. Do please consider this as your opportunity to contribute to the success of Harrow U3A.
We are looking at a new system for administering the membership. Several members went to a seminar about it and will be meeting to discuss the financial implications and how much change will be involved. We will, of course keep you informed. If you change any of your contact details, including home address, email address or phone number, please do remember to inform the Membership Secretary, Yahoo, your Group Leaders as well as friends. We do have a few new groups, either to join, or at the proposal stage. Please read your newsletter with care so you don’t miss out.
Lastly, don’t forget to use the website for up-to-date news about events and developments.
