Constitution and Policies


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.


We adopted a new constitution  in 2021. 2021 Constitution

If you are a coordinator and would like to have your details in the Digest, then complete and return the Coordinator Signature Form.
If you are a Coordinator or Committee Member and would like to show your name and phone number on the website, you must also complete an Additional Consent Form and return it to the Secretary. 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!) Choose the file below, edit it and send it back by email. Just type in your name, no signature is required. Download Additional Consent Form
