Convenors’ Meetings

2021

U3A Bendigo is scheduled to hold it’s next Convenors’ Meeting on 24 March 2021. The Agenda will include welcoming any new Convenors, any required changes to Activities and anything else the Convenors wish to discuss.

Please remember that whilst we will carry out the meeting face to face, we are also aiming to use ZOOM. If you would like to use this technology, please contact David and we will create an invitation for you to attend.

After the Convenors’ Meeting we would love to have you stay on for the Social Gathering which is also on Wednesday 24 March 2021 at 2pm until 4pm. Please remember the change of time. We are aiming to provide you with a relaxed afternoon, with guest speakers or entertainment of some kind, and some fun along the way.

2020

U3A Bendigo held their first and last Convenors’ Meeting for 2020 on Wednesday 24 March. It was held like most meetings via Zoom and appeared to work quite well with 28 Convenors.

New members can attend via Zoom, if you have a free copy of Zoom installed on your device. You will also need to let the Activities Coordinator know that you are coming, so they can send you an email invitation.

The focus of the meeting was on welcoming new Convenors and some new Committee members, finding out how Convenors’ are managing their groups in this COVID-normal world, the 13-week COVID-Safe Attendance Sheets, and other topics.

David also showed us the new Schedule he’d been working on to see how we might fit into the Hall when we start to open up.

One of the things changing in 2021 is how we run our U3A Bendigo’s Social Gatherings. They will start on Wednesday 24 March 2021 at 2pm until 4pm. Please note the change of time. We are aiming to provide you with a relaxed afternoon, with guest speakers or entertainment of some kind, and some fun along the way. We will advise you if we can use the kitchen.
