Interest Groups

Members will be encouraged to join interest groups. We are continually looking for opportunities to serve our members by developing new interest groups. Even if they only run for a few months, that can be valuable.

Interest Groups
Jenny and Diana

Here is our own list of potential interest groups. All we need are members and leaders. Diana McMurtrie 352-8547, coordinates the interest groups.

If you search other U3A'S and examine their activities you will see that the only limit is how many people are interested, and do we have volunteer leaders.

You can volunteer to lead a St Albans U3A interest group here.

Tell Us About Yourself

None of this is necessary, but it will be helpful to the committee and quite likely to yourself, if you have a think about what you need to accomplish, what your skills are, and what you want to get involved in.

For instance do you have a passion you want to share with others? Volunteer to lead an interest group about that.

Do you have a connection with a tertiary institution where we might as a group develop a research interest that involves working with staff and students in a collaborative way. How could we develop that?

Do you know, or know of, interesting future speakers for our Main Meeting
