BNB U3A NEWS!!!
GDPR ~ General Data Protection Regulation
Many of you will have been have been inundated with e-mails and letters from companies telling you all about GDPR – or as its better known the new law on data protection. We at BNB U3A have also fallen into the machine of new law changes and need to let you know how we deal with your personal data (addresses, telephone Nos, e-mails etc.) to conform to this new law. Some of the committee members have been on the requisite courses and have brought back sheaves of regulations, interpretations, examples and instructions and with a diligence, that only I can wonder at, have reduced the documents down into something that suits our little organisation.
Rather than send you all a copy we are putting our policy and details of its operation on the web for those of you with a masochistic streak to read and ‘enjoy’. Despite this somewhat light-hearted comment it is crucial and important for you to understand that we are conforming to the law and looking after your interests.
If you have any concerns or wish to know more then read the document or get in touch with either Paul Davis or Rita Ison-Jacques (our resident experts) who can give you more information on this subject.
The data supplied to group leaders under the ICE procedure (In Case of Emergency) is also changing and the group leaders will be informed directly about those new requirements.
FUNDING FOR INTEREST GROUPS
The committee is re-examining its internal procedures and one of the first issues concerns requests for funding from interest groups. All interest groups have the right to request funding in support of their declared activities from the committee. To ensure that this is carried out in a fair and reasonable way it is introducing a procedure for a group to request money for an associated activity. On the web you will now find an application form and a set of notes to help you apply for this money.
Read these notes and if your group could do with some equipment or financial support, get your group to agree it, and your group leader to fill out a form and apply. Or contact anyone on the committee who will help you with this process.
