Membership Renewal Online

WELCOME to ONLINE RENEWAL
Membership renewal is due from 1 March although you can renew online using our Beacon Management System any time from mid February 2021

Online payment will be through our U3A PayPal site using a debit card, credit card or with a PayPal account.
**Note that neither U3A nor Beacon has any access to debit or credit card details. You do not need to have or open a PayPal account.**

We do hope that you will renew online as it will greatly reduce our administrative load at this busy time of year.
