The Committee


U3A BB is managed by a dedicated band of volunteers who take responsibility for:

  • developing the program of activities
  • managing the finances
  • maintaining a register of members
  • communicating with members
  • promoting our organisation
  • meeting legal requirements

The U3A Committee meets on the third Wednesday of each month.

The Committee is supported by a number of ‘off-committee’ positions who undertake a range of activities in support of our organisation.

For further information on how the committee operates, see the Committee Handbook  (currently undergoing review).

If you would like to offer your skills, time and energy and be a part of our vibrant group we/d love to hear from you – you can contact us here.
