Your Jávea U3A Needs You!!!

Your Committee has produced a comprehensive Process to cover the yearly Executive Committee Elections. This Process is supported by an Online Election Facility which will simplify the voting for our Members by allowing them to vote via the Jávea U3A WebSite.


This Election Process will be used in the upcoming election in March 2017 and hopefully for subsequent elections in future years. The Election Process will provide automatic auditing and integrity checks as well as producing a report of the results of the election.



As you are aware, the Jávea U3A is run by volunteers, over 80 members currently give up a lot of their time to keep this association functioning. We now need ONE MORE VOLUNTEER.


This Election Process is built around an independent Election Auditor who will ensure that the process is followed correctly. Although the work of the Election Auditor is quite small, it is a critical part of the Election Process and safeguards the integrity of the process.


The Election Process is due start in late September, but this cannot happen until we have a volunteer for the role of Election Auditor.


Please look at the Job Description for the Election Auditor and the definition of the Election Process. You will see that the work involved is small, easy and not a problem for most people. Please contact the President (president@u3ajavea.org) or any other Committee Member if you feel you can help us.


Looking forward to hearing from you.

Travel - The Asturias Trip

At the June General Meeting, Travel Organiser Charo Brown collected expressions of interest for a possible trip next year to Asturias. Response was very good and so planning of this trip can now go ahead.

For those members that expressed interest, it is important to understand that the June meeting was not collecting bookings and names taken in June will have no bearing on the final booking list.

Bookings will not start until the October General Meeting when a deposit will be required to secure each and every booking.

See Travel for those details currently available.

Discount List

There are 22 suppliers of goods and services on the discount list. All of these have been contacted in the last 3 months to confirm their participation in our discount scheme. Members are encouraged to take advantage of these discounts and special offers.

Many members will frequent establishments and use services where their supplier would be pleased to have access to an association with over 1200 members.

We suggest that our members should encourage such suppliers to offer a discount or special offer specifically for Jávea U3A members. This can be done by asking the supplier to get in touch with the President (president@u3ajavea.org) or any member of the Committee.

It should be emphasised that the Jávea U3A does not endorse or recommend any services on the Discount List.
