Annual General Meeting

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The 13th Annual General Meeting of Knutsford and District U3A will be held on Thursday 10th May 2018 at

Knutsford Methodist Church at 2.15pm

 

 

All members are invited to attend the AGM, to be followed by a talk by Ron Hutchinson entitled ‘Life through the rear view mirror, chauffeuring the aristocracy’.  There will be refreshments as usual.

The AGM will include reports from the Chair and Treasurer and a proposal from the Committee to the members to change the object clause of our constitution.

 

Proposal from the Committee – Clause 3 (our Object Clause)

We need to change this clause again this year because the Charity Commission has recently advised our national body, the Third Age Trust, that the wording of our object clauses need to include all our activities, not limiting it to educational activities only.  We need to adopt this agreed new wording to ensure that we comply with charity law and ensure that all our activities are covered by our insurance policies.  The new wording is-

 

“The advancement of education and, in particular, the education of older people and those who are retired from full time work, by all means, including associated activities conducive to learning and personal development.”
