Join Nillumbik U3A (new members)


Membership of Nillumbik U3A is open to all retired or semi retired people.

The annual membership (Jan-Dec) covers the expenses of hiring venues, newsletters, postage, publicity and administrative costs.

As a member, you can join as many classes as there are vacancies. All classes are free but some may require a small additional charge for materials, photocopying, entrance fees or hiring equipment.

Please read our Code of Conduct Policy designed for the benefit and protection of the organisation and of members’ personal rights.

If you wish to join, you will need to:

  1. Pay your annual membership fee.
  2. Complete a membership form.

Before joining, you may wish to have a look at our class timetable, including which classes currently have spaces available.

Our Office will notify new members once their application and payment has been processed. You will be sent a lanyard and badge showing your member number which can then be used to enrol in classes.
