. Message from the U3APP President

Welcome back to Term 2 at U3A Port Phillip.

As I reported in my previous message a Working Group of the COM has been established and continues to meet at least twice a week to shape and monitor our response to the ‘new normal’.

I am delighted to report that as a consequence of their incredible efforts, 70% of our Courses will continue either as Online events (50%) or by email. A sincere thanks to each of them:- Pam Caven, Diane Boyle and Jim Pribble.

Our thanks also goes to the Tutors for embracing new and innovative ways of offering their Courses. Additionally we must also acknowledge the IT and Enrolment Teams who have enabled this by setting up new systems and providing guidance and training. They have been outstanding.

Members are encouraged to get ready for their online Courses by accessing How to get Started on Zoom on the U3A website.

Our weekly E-Bulletin is both entertaining and, significantly, keeps Members up to date.

On behalf of the Committee of Management, I wish you a Happy Easter/Passover.

Stay safe, well and happy

Graham Gosling - President
