Network President's Communique - November 2021

Dear Greg

Welcome to the first of the quarterly communiques that will be my personal communication with you about items of significant U3A news. I hope in this way to update you on progress of matters of strategic importance to you and your committee members.
I am aware that for many members of U3A associations in Queensland, there is little awareness of the work done to advance the cause of U3As within the state and nationally.  I encourage committees to make this communique available to members so that they can learn more about the U3A movement, what it stands for and what is being achieved on their behalf.
Your feedback on the form and contents of the communique would be greatly appreciated, especially any suggestions that could improve it, and please let us know if the salutation needs to be updated.

Best regards

Gail Bonser
