Membership fees are due on the 1st January 2020.

In compliance with the Derby U3A constitution, members have until 28 February 2020 to renew their membership.

From 2020 renewal membership cards will not be issued routinely. Membership cards card remain valid whilst the annual subscription continues to be paid. However, if a member requires a Membership card showing the current year to prove their membership for U3A National Summer schools, Workshops etc this will be issued upon receipt of a Membership Card Request.

If NOT intending to renew your membership: please inform the membership secretary or telephone or text 07866 078180.

If you are also a member of another U3A: there may be a reciprocal arrangement. Visit cluster partners for information.

If you have mislaid your membership card or are requesting a current year membership card, please either:

  • a) email your request (include name and membership number) to membership secretary. A membership card will be emailed to you


  • b) post a Membership Card Request to the membership secretary. A stamped addressed envelope is required to post your membership card to you.

Membership cards will not be issued until payment is confirmed.


• Full members: £15.00
• Associated members (i.e. if you hold full membership with another U3A): £11.50
