Participative Learning - (April for Scotland locations) - Booking now!
This full day workshop builds on the very popular Participative Learning workshop at the National Conference in Nottingham. It will include an interactive presentation and a series of exploratory planning activities. The main supporting document will be More Time to Learn.
Possible audience: all U3A members but of particular interest to those who run Interest groups or those who co-ordinate their U3A’s Interest groups.
Managing your U3A - (April, May)
Booking details will be distributed in due course
•    Being a Trustee
•    Committees and Constitutions
We have been asked to repeat the workshop Managing Growth but we have built in general management issues to meet a wider need. In the best tradition of U3A, we will be learning from each other in a supportive environment. The day includes a presentation, sharing best practice from many U3As and discussion and problem solving sessions. 
Possible audience: committee members and prospective committee members 
Planning ahead: More Time to Learn, Laugh and Live
(July, September, October)
Booking details will be distributed in due course
This is an interactive  whole day workshop where delegates take part in each module. Three topics seem to be at the forefront of the challenges that face many U3As:
•    Induction for new Committee members / Trustees
•    Starting new Interest Groups
•    Dealing with the “difficult customer” 
We can all learn from each other and, in this context, we hope to be able to encourage you to find solutions to some of your challenges and leave everyone more time to enjoy U3A. Delegates will cover each of the 3 topics in different groupings so that they hear the different ways in which U3As organise things in their U3As. At least some will be right for you! 
Possible audience: committee members and prospective committee members
