EASTLAKES U3A  AGM  -  SHOWCASE   AND  ENROLMENT DAY   2019

Our constitution states that the Annual General Meeting must be held within one month of the end of our accounting year.  To avoid having our Annual General Meeting during the summer break we are proposing some changes to the constitution. Details will be sent to you but include changing the date of the AGM to within 6 months of the end of the financial year and reducing the size of the required quorum. This meeting will be on Friday November 29th at the Salvation Army Hall, 360 Pacific Highway, Belmont North from 9am and includes the Showcase and Enrolment Day.

A New Home for Eastlakes U3A

                                           

The new LMCC Council lease agreement has enabled our organisation to apply for a lease on the current Belmont Seniors Citizens Hall and it has recently been approved.         WE HAVE A NEW HOME!!

The five-year lease will see Eastlakes U3A manage the Centre, hosting many of our courses at the site and using the building as a new administrative headquarters.

Council Manager Community Partnerships Andrew Bryant released a media statement this week  :-

“Other existing users of the centre will be able to continue using the facility, but Eastlakes U3A will manage the site,” Mr Bryant said. “We’ve written a condition into the lease to ensure U3A continues to make the centre available for general community use, so this really is a win-win situation.”

The new HQ will also eventually serve as a drop-in centre for members, who stretch from Charlestown in the north to Swansea in the south. And because we have this new office space we’ll be able to do things like apply for grants and explore other opportunities to increase services to our members.

A planning day has been held and ideas shared about the MANAGEMENT, OPERATIONS, MAINTENANCE and PUBLICITY requirements that we will need to plan for. All members are welcome to contact Lorraine McEwan-McKenzie on 0458451528 for any ongoing information or assistance.
