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.
