Newsletters via Email

We email the U3A City & Inner West Region Newsletter to every Sydney U3A member who lives in the City & Inner West Region for whom we have an email address.

If your email address has changed, or if you have never given your email address to Sydney U3A, you’ll miss out on the newsletter.

You can add or update your email address via the Membership section on the Sydney U3A website, or by contacting Central Office.

If you live outside the City & Inner West Region, and would like to receive the City & Inner West newsletter, please send an email to u3a.innerwest@gmail.com and we’ll add you to the list.

Sydney U3A Never Spams, Never Gives Your Email Address to Anyone

Sydney U3A takes great care with your privacy

We never give out your email address to anyone outside Sydney U3A. So spammers will never get your email address from Sydney U3A.

We only use your email address to send a very small number of emails. These include newsletters from Central Office and your Region (usually only one or two per month). Very rarely we will send out important notices from Central Office, and notifications of changes to courses.
