Thank you for your interest in joining U3A Southern Highlands Inc.

For you (or you and your partner) to become members of U3A Southern Highlands please click HERE to subscribe on-line using our web site.

If your partner is already a member, you can join on-line by clicking HERE.

Alternatively, click Membership_Application_Form to download a Membership Application Form and mail it to us.

Membership includes the right to enrol in courses, attend events throughout the year, and receive our quarterly newsletter that describes our courses for the term. Our annual membership fee is $45 per person per calendar year (January – December). If you choose to have the newsletter mailed to you the annual fee is $55. During a membership year, if you join after 1st June you pay half the annual fees.

You will receive an email from us when we have processed your payment. At that time, you are a paid “financial” member and you can log in as a member and start enrolling in courses.

If you join on-line and pay by direct deposit, we can usually process your payment within five banking business days. If you pay by cheque mailed to us, or you join by mailing a Membership Application Form to us, we can usually process your payment within ten business days.

After your membership payment and application form have been processed, we will mail you a welcome letter and a membership card (badge), usually within ten business days. Please wear your badge to U3A courses and activities.

Membership is open to retired or semi-retired people who accept our Constitution. No formal academic qualifications are required. Application for new membership must be made on our Membership Application Form (on-line or hard copy), and accompanied by payment for full or half year subscription. A half year subscription only applies to the second half of a membership year. A membership year is the calendar year (1st January to 31st December).

Membership is maintained (renewed) by paying the annual subscription for the following year starting in October each year.

If you have a query, you may telephone us on 9990 6650 and leave a message with your name, telephone number and a summary of your query. A member of the Committee will contact you as quickly as possible. Alternatively, you may contact us by email at
