OTHER NEWS:   Sydney U3A income is generated primarily from membership. It is essentially the only income available to pay ongoing running and administration expenses.

We ask all leaders/class secretaries to assist by reminding attendees at courses, talks and events that membership cards should be worn and that attendance at classes is only available to financial members of Sydney U3A. Leaders/class secretaries must record membership numbers on the course attendance sheets. Membership cards contain a membership renewal date.

An easy way for members to reduce costs is to choose to receive the course book as an electronic copy rather than a hard copy – call Head Office if you’d like to help in this way.

Currently, 83.9% Endeavour Region membership have advised their email addresses
