Special General Meeting (SGM) approves changes to Constitution

The Special General Meeting held on 26 April 2017 to approve the Revised Constitution just failed to achieve the required quorum of 91 members (15% 0f 608 members) and thus the meeting was adjourned by the Chairman. As provided in the existing constitution the Executive Committee decided to hold the adjourned meeting on Wednesday 28 June 2017 in Kennet Valley Hall at 2:15pm ahead of the Tea and Talk presentation from the National Trust.  

That meeting approved the various changes to the U3A in Kennet Constitution.  These changes now have to be approved by the Charities Commission and the U3A Trust.

More details of this meeting can be found by clicking here

2017 Yearbook published

The 2017 Yearbook has now been published.  This booklet contains details of the U3A, the Executive Committee, Groups and other information.  Every member of the U3A in Kennet should receive a copy of the Yearbook.  Distribution of the initial print run in December 2016 hit problems which resulted in most copies not arriving.  A re-print was organised and all members who indicated that they hadn’t received a copy should have received a replacement in February 20176.  If you are a member and have not received your copy, please contact Nick Swan, Membership Secretary at membership@u3ainkennet.org.uk

You can download a version of the Yearbook here:
