Group Leaders Meeting

More than forty of our groups were represented at a meeting in the Angel Hotel on Friday, 10th February.  The purpose of the meeting was to discuss a range of topics concerned with the organisation and smooth running of groups and was designed to help develop a sense of common identity between group leaders, Groups Co-ordinators and the committee, and to give group leaders an opportunity to share experiences, to learn from each other and find potential solutions to problems which may arise.  Here, discussion centred on three topics: finding people willing to take over leadership when necessary; how to encourage SLU3A members to join groups which need new members; and whether to set up new groups when existing ones reached capacity.

What emerged from the discussion and a flurry of ‘post-it’ notes was both interesting and helpful and a summary of concerns and suggestions can be seen if you click here: Group Leaders workshop February 2017
