Volunteering opportunities with CEDU3A

Volunteering is at the heart of every U3A and embedded in our principles of mutual aid and self-help. At Crouch End and District U3A currently we have around 120 people who convene our groups and manage the various activities which contribute to the running of the U3A. However, if we are going to continue to develop and grow, we need more volunteers. Would you consider helping us?
 
There are a number of areas where we would like some help and support, some short term and others requiring a longer term commitment.
 

We are coming up to our membership renewal period and would very much appreciate some help with administrative tasks – preparing membership cards, addressing and stuffing envelopes. If you would like to help please email our Membership Secretary Ed Allen on membership@cedu3a.org.uk.

If you feel that you would like to help our membership team on a more permanent basis, we are looking for a Deputy Membership Secretary to assist Ed. To find out more email membership@cedu3a.org.uk.

We will soon be buying some additional portable audio visual equipment for use at the Monthly Meetings , the Science of Health seminars and some group sessions, and would like a volunteer or two to help set up the equipment at the Monthly Meetings, or to to coordinate the booking in and out of storage and ensure everything is working properly. If you are interested in help with this email Sally on vicechair@cedu3a.org.uk.

Perhaps you have a background in promotion and marketing? If so we would love to hear from you! We are hoping to establish an External Relations team to promote our U3A by publishing an online newsletter, summarizing the Monthly Meeting talks for the CEDU3A website, liasing with local media outlets, and so on. If you are interested in help with this email Sally on vicechair@cedu3a.org.uk.

And finally we are looking for an overall Volunteer Coordinator to work with the manager of our volunteer daabase. This will involve having direct with our volunteers and be more involved in matching volunteers to vacancies, etc. If you are interested in help with this email Sally on vicechair@cedu3a.org.uk.
