AGM 2020 V3


The 37th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Third Age Trust will be be held online only on 29th September at 10am and all U3A members will be welcome to attend. We anticipate the meeting may last for around 3 hours. The day finishes with a presentation on 'Building the Brand' by the Communications and External Affairs Committee.

We are using a company called Lumiglobal to provide a secure platform for the meeting and associated voting. To access the meeting, either download the dedicated “Lumi AGM” app on your smartphone or tablet or go to the dedicated AGM website at on the day.

Meeting ID: 123-320-806

If you are a registered voting delegate for your U3A you will be sent a unique password by email ahead of the meeting so you can log in with that to attend the AGM. You will then be able to cast your votes during the meeting.

Non-voting delegates are also very welcome to attend the AGM. You should also download the app or go to the web address as above on the day of the meeting. You will be prompted to complete fields including your name and U3A to access the meeting as a guest. You will be able to listen and watch the presentations and slides but non-voting members will not be able to ask questions or vote, as at our usual “in person” AGMs.

Director Elections

A Regional Trustee is a member elected by a region to the Board of the Third Age Trust. The Regional Trustee brings expertise and knowledge from their region to assist in their role as a director of a national charity. Regional Trustees promote the ethos, principles and benefits of affiliation to the Trust. They represent the Trust and its views to any regional organisation, all networks and all member U3As and ensure that the views, activities and achievements of the networks and U3As are presented to the Board.

Directors from the following regions/countries will have completed their initial three-year term. This will result in a vacancy for election from the region/country. As well as other nominees, incumbent directors are eligible to be nominated from the relevant region/country for re-election for a maximum of two further terms, each of one year only.

The closing date for nominations has now passed (31st July 2020). The number of candidates we have had nominated for each region is shown below.
