jean hoggRegional Trustee for the East Midlands

I am delighted to have been elected as your Trustee for the next three years. I know how hard everyone works to support the U3A in many ways and I look forward to being part of that process.
I have been a member of the U3A for eleven years and for much of that time I have been a committee member, having been Chair of Southwell U3A for three years as well as being Groups Coordinator at Southwell and Keyworth. I was also involved with the Notts Network for several years, being Chair for two.
It feels really good to know that I can now contribute to all the Networks in the Region and I know that together we will be able to further improve the lives of those in their third age, with learning, laughter and fulfilment. I know I have a lot to learn, so please do not expect me to know everything, but I look forward to getting to know you all and about the things you hope to achieve.

EGM March 2018
We are pleased to invite each U3A to send representatives to the EGM (extraordinary general meeting) taking place on 21 March 2018 at the University of Birmingham's Great Hall.  This is set to be an exciting event giving U3As an important opportunity to get involved in the direction of the movement with a vote on the proposed changes following a year-long consultation with members. The EGM will be live-streamed to give those U3As that cannot attend in person the opportunity watch the proceedings.
