Much of my time these days is spent trying to persuade Members to take on committee posts. I can’t be very good at it because I am having little success!
Our current Treasurer Brian Cairnie comes to the end of his term in a few months time and we need to find a replacement. I have asked a number of Members but all have declined.
I need to be very clear with Members regarding the consequences of not having a Treasurer in place on the Executive Committee. It is a requirement of both our own Constitution and the Charity Commission that our funds are properly managed. Without a Treasurer in place we would have to limit our financial activities to the bare minimum. There
are certain bills we would have to pay (such as the Third Age Trust levy), but other items of expenditure such as the printed newsletter, hall hire, capital equipment etc would have to be reviewed and in some cases stopped. Furthermore we could only carry on limping along like this for another year at which point we would have no alternative but to wind up our U3A.
IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT?
The ethos of our U3A is that we are a learning cooperative. Our success depends on all of us contributing in some way and thanks are due to those who already do. We are a 1,000 strong and it should not be so difficult to get Members to take on committee roles - but it is!
So, please consider what you can do to contribute to your U3A - particularly with regard to the Treasurer’s job - so that we can confidently look forward to the future. Please give me a call.
