From the Chairman

There are two very important notices in this month’s newsletter, so please read these fully…. One is to remind you that subscriptions for the year 2019/20 are due as of April 1st from anyone joining us prior to 1st January 2019. It would be wonderful if they could all be collected by the end of May instead of the usual long drawn out effort that can last right through to September or beyond! Please make every effort to pay promptly this year.

The second notice is about our next Annual General Meeting which will be held prior to the General Meeting on May 21st. The AGM agenda includes a proposal to change the quorum needed from 15% to 10% of membership. Please note the earlier start time for this meeting so that we can complete all the business aspects before moving promptly on to our speaker.

Talking of speakers, I think that those who attended the February meeting will agree that those who didn’t attend missed a real treat. Listening to Mr Chris Evans tell us about how The Butterfly Garden in Cheltenham came into being was truly inspirational.

March 6th was a long but rewarding day for your committee. Firstly, we held our regular committee meeting at which we discussed various topics including the proposed change to Section 15 of our constitution (see AGM Notice in this newsletter). Then we moved on to a strategy session to discuss how we want to move forward in Cirencester U3A (by evolution, not revolution, so don’t be concerned that we are about to make sweeping changes!). We will meet again in April to expand and prioritise the ideas, then I’ll keep you updated through the newsletter.

I’m sorry that I won’t be at the March General Meeting but I will be representing Cirencester U3A at a Cotswold Link meeting set for the same day in Herefordshire. Jan Kidman will be leading your meeting and introducing the speaker.
