Many thanks to everyone who attended the “Ask the Chair” virtual session with the National u3a Chair Ian McCannah on March 11th, approx. 90-members attended, which we hope those attending found informative, any follow up questions to our Regional Trustee Margaret Fiddes at email@example.com
PLANNING FOR NATIONAL u3a Day
Zoom meeting on 9th April 2021. The aim of this session is to support all u3as in planning for u3a day on Wednesday 2nd June 2021. See events page for links or click here
We are pleased to say Helen Leech has taken on the role, following the Election of Margaret Fiddes as Regional Trustee for YAHR, Helen can be contacted using contacts page for advice or firstname.lastname@example.org
‘The aim of the role is to support u3as in the region in their efforts to engage with local media and press in order to raise their profile.’
This new role is part of the Trust’s strategic project of raising the profile of the u3a movement. I will be part of a UK wide team of other PR Advisors and I am looking forward to working with u3as in our region.
If u3as could get in touch with details of their publicity or PR secretaries names please that would be most helpful. It would be really useful to build up a database of contacts across the region. Please do email details to me and of course any questions or queries.
Many thanks. Helen
