Our New President

Barbara Boston, the President of Sydney U3A for the last three years, has resigned. This created a casual vacancy for the position.

At its meeting on Wednesday April 1, 2020 the Board of Management of Sydney U3A (BOM) resolved to appoint Judy Harris as President to fill the casual vacancy.

Judy, on behalf of the BOM and members of Sydney U3A, thanked Barbara for her three years as President, saying that it was very much appreciated by the Board of Management and all our members.
