How We Are Organised


The Committee is the Bracknell Forest U3A executive body.
It comprises the statutory posts of:-

Admin Secretary
along with up to eight other 'ordinary' committee members.

The Committee must be elected/re-elected at the AGM in May each year.

No-one may be Chairman or Vice-Chairman for more than three consecutive years.

Delegated Duties

The Committee delegates specific duties to numerous other members. These duties include:

Web Editor
Publicity officer
Events Secretary
Groups Support Officer
Membership Secretary
Speakers’ Secretary
Minutes Secretary
Beacon Administrator [Beacon is the nationally provided U3A membership/finance system]
GDPR Officer [General Data Protection Regulations]
Newsletter Editor(s)
Newsletter Copying & Mailing Team
Welcome Team for Open Meetings
Volunteer Team (including refreshments at Open Meetings)

For several of these duties, it is either necessary or desirable that they be undertaken by Committee Members.

Interest Groups

The main work of Bracknell Forest U3A is carried out by the various Interest Groups. Each Interest Group has a Coordinator who has overall responsibility for that Group but is not necessarily the person that leads individual sessions. Like Bracknell Forest U3A itself, each Group must meet its own expenses - usually through a small contribution each time a member attends.
