From the Chair

Autumn seems to have crept up on us rapidly over the last couple of weeks.   That’s where the wide variety of groups offered by SLU3A really kicks in: not only sharing similar interests, maybe learning something new or simply making new friends!  We always welcome new ideas, too, and we’ll be there with a smile and support to help you get going (see Group Enabler section for contact details).

Your Committee continues to be busy, especially with planning for several 20th Anniversary events next year.  Again, any help or ideas welcomed – just contact a Committee member.  There’s also the Group Leaders’ Workshop in November where we hope to see as many of you as possible.

On the subject of the Committee, we are still seeking a Membership Secretary, ideally to begin to take over the role from next February.  We are a friendly bunch and will be there to support you, including helping you to use the Beacon software.   Most of the year it is about processing new memberships as people join each month and we can help out in April/May when annual subscriptions are due.   This an essential role and will give you plenty of opportunity to meet new people, too.  If you are interested, do call me on 07837 410 575 or email: helensalisburyslu3a@gmail.com
