Group Leader Information


Never forget that your group is a U3A group, so please don’t feel that you are working in isolation. However, this brings with it a level of involvement with your local U3A.  This is necessary as you, as a leader, are the link between the committee and the members.

Please take time to read this information.  Hopefully it will provide answers to some of the questions you may have, either now or in the future, concerning your role.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the Group Organiser with any queries you may have or should any problems arise at any time during the year.
