Constitution and Policies

Introduction

U3A Dacorum is a trust and has a board of trustees. There is a requirement for certain policies to be put in place so that we provide guidance to our trustees, coordinators and members to avoid and deal with situations that may occur. Our highest level document is the constitution, which is supported at a working level by the Committee and Coordinator Handbooks.

Constitution

We adopted a new constitution  in 2021. 2021 Constitution

The form can be either printed, completed and posted or completed and sent by email (quicker and cheaper than licking a stamp and addressing an envelope!)
