On 15 May 2013, U3A Network Victoria will hold an annual briefing for Member U3A Presidents. The briefing will cover several topics important to the running of individual U3As. In addition to the President or her/his stand-in, one or two additional representatives from each U3A would also be welcome.
Join us for the ‘Monetising mobile’ webinar on Thursday 18 April 2013 at 10-11am AEST and learn how you can use mobile and text campaigns to grow your community of donors and supporters.
a. Consumer Affairs Victoria has been in touch with all incorporated associations about the provisions of the new act and the timeframes and possible changes resulting from it. Your U3A should have this material now.
b. In addition to materials forwarded by Consumer Affairs, guidance is being provided to us by the Public Interest Law Clearing House (Vic) Inc. which supports not-for-profits in understanding and interpreting legal issues. This group is known as PILCH, and has published on their website a lot of material about the changes needed to our constitutions or rules and, in some cases, to our operations, as a result of the new Act.
