Getting involved in iU3A enables people to expand their horizons, share skills and knowledge and help others to learn.
Annual General Meeting
Islington U3A held its first AGM

election of an Executive Committee. Our Chair, Anne
Weyman, gave her report on our highly successful first
year and looked forward to the next. For more
information, including a link to the full text of Anne's
report, see here.

October saw the vast
majority of existing members rejoining as we started our
second year. We now have over 300 members, a new high, with
the number still rising. Of course members who have been
tardy in renewing can still do so.
