The committee has been discussing what we should do about the Orkney U3A AGM, scheduled to take place this coming Thursday. In line with various other organisations in Orkney we have decided to err on the side of caution and cancel the meeting. Postponing until a later date might be an option, but this would be for an indefinite, and probably rather long, period. So, despite the problems of doing things virtually, I think we should try and carry out the main AGM business through our website and by mail or e-mail with time put aside for any other issues to be raised next time we do meet. Given our age range, ours is a particularly vulnerable group compared with others that are cancelling meetings, so I would rather be overcautious than live to regret it.
I hope to be in touch soon with alternative arrangements for dealing with the business that was scheduled for the AGM.
Meanwhile, please keep fit – and cheerful.
All the best,
