Membership and Enrolment

As a member of Lake Macquarie U3A you are entitled to attend as many courses, talks and events as you wish during the year, subject to the availability of places. Membership is from January to December of the calendar year following each end-of-year Annual General Meeting.

The full membership subscription is $60 per person, regardless of when membership is renewed or when a new member joins before the end of Semester 2 sessions. Click here for payment instructions.

Please use our system of online forms if possible, either yourself or with the help of a friend. These do not require sign ups or passwords, nor for you to have an email address although using one provides far better all-round communication. The forms can be securely and safely completed on any computer or device and can be accessed at any time. They allow you to:

– join as a new member:
include an email address to ensure faster and more comprehensive communication

update contact details:
a quick way to keep your record up to date to ensure best contact with you, and please use to advise any changes before applying online

apply for or withdraw from courses, provide support information, advise subscription payment

While far less convenient, timely, or reliable, you may alternatively complete and post the Membership and Course Application form. This form is updated with each semester’s Program and is available during the enrolment period from Toronto Library.

You need to advise your method of payment in your application for new membership, or on the course application form for current members. There is no online membership renewal form per se, and there is no ‘Enrolment Day’ for in-person application.

See Course Enrolment for options on how and when to apply for courses.
