U3A is a wonderful institution, of which I’ve been a member for many years and hopefully will be for many more. In the past at U3A Port Phillip, I have attended various subjects and tutored travel planning courses, but I look forward to contributing further through the management committee, which I have been a member of since 2022. Since retiring as an electrical engineer I served ten years on the council of the Genealogical Society of Victoria, much of that as secretary. Thus I am aware of the issues and regulations affecting not-for-profit organizations that depend heavily on volunteers; also fairly familiar with technology matters. Outside of keeping mentally active through U3A, my interests are family, travel, bridge, running our superannuation fund and owners corporation matters in our building. If I am re-elected to the committee, be assured that I will be committed to making our revered centre for seniors learning and socialising even more appealing.
