Membership: New Members Welcome!

New Members Welcome!

U3A Redcliffe has around 1400 active members. We welcome enquiries and new membership applications.

Seniors who join find an array of wonderful classes and social experiences to enjoy and often make great friends among these groups. Please drop in or phone us if you’re interested in joining.

Eligibility for membership

If you are over 50 and retired or semi-retired you are eligible to join U3A Redcliffe.

Membership fees are $20 per year.  If joining in Term 3 fees will be $15; joining in Term 4 fees will be $10.

In 2024 the membership fee will increase to $25 per annum.

Reciprocal membership fee is $10 and offered to members of another U3A, but current receipt or badge must be provided at time of paying U3A Redcliffe fees.

Eligibility for membership: Age 50 years plus, in their third age (retired or semi-retired).  See U3A Redcliffe Inc Constitution.

After completion of membership application and payment of fees, the application is submitted to the Committee for their acceptance at the first meeting after the form has been completed.

For members to remain financial members, the annual membership fee must be paid before 31 December each year (Constitution 5[a]). Members may maintain a continuity of membership if they pay their annual fee between 1 January and the Annual General Meeting each year, but in choosing to do so will become unfinancial members until their membership is paid (5[b]). At the point of the AGM unpaid memberships will lapse.

To ensure equity of access into our courses, only financial members of U3A Redcliffe Inc. may enrol, or be pre-enrolled, in a course. A member who is pre-enrolled in a course/s but is found to be an unfinancial member will be withdrawn from any courses into which they have been pre-enrolled. A person who has paid their annual membership fee but whose membership application is pending approval by the Management Committee is deemed to be a financial member for the purposes of enrolment. A person whose membership is subsequently not approved will have their membership fee refunded and will be withdrawn from any courses in which they have enrolled.

At time of joining, each new member receives a copy of the Members’ Handbook.

On campus, class fees for each class attended will be $2.00 plus the cost of photocopying, if needed.

Off campus class fees are as noted in the relevant class information.
