Unfortunately the Flintshire U3A Annual General Meeting 2018, scheduled for April 5th 2018 was not quorate and consequently could not take place.

In order to reach a quorum we needed 15%  of our paid up membership to be present.
We needed 104 members to be present but only 94 members attended.

The A.G.M. is a requirement of the The Third Age Trust and the Charities Commission.

A.G.Ms are necessary to allow for new officers to be be elected on to the committee and for business from the Third Age Trust, that requires a members vote, to take place.

The A.G.M. Will now be held as an Emergency General Meeting at the end of the
June 7
th  Open Meeting at  Connah’s Quay Civic Hall

1. At the EGM  we will need to pass the minutes of the 2017 AGM.
2. There will be an election for the role of Secretary to Flintshire U3A  and committee members.

3. Members will also be required to vote on the Adoption of the new Object Clause into our constitution. (See below)

We need as many of our members as possible to attend the June meeting.


Change to The Constitution of Flintshire U3A

At an E.G.M. of the Third Age Trust on March 21nd 2018 a vote was held to adopt a change to the Object Clause (4) in the Articles of Association. The vote was carried by a large majority.

The Committee of Flintshire U3A voted in favour of adopting the clause.

We have have also opted in to adopting the clause into our constitution. This is to ensure we are operating correctly. It also allows more flexibility in what we are able to offer should the need arise.

This means that need to change our constitution to include the new clause.

The change must be ratified by the membership at an A.G.M. or E.G.M. We will be doing this under A.O.B. at our A.G.M. on June 7th.
