We are a network of energy, enthusiasm and great ideas. We are looking forward to a conference of discussion and innovation. Everyone will be involved in discussions and workshops which will hope will be lively and full of ideas and experiences, bringing the best of our network to the future. We have been set a challenge by our founder to reach the next 1000 U3As, we need to keep our current network strong, and attract the membership for the future. The conference will be an opportunity to bring forward your experiences, as well as talk through some of the daily operational matters that face U3As. We will have some great speakers too. Please come and join the discussion.
