Welcome to the the Essex Association of U3As website.
We are an Association of over 50 U3As (and growing) from across the County of Essex, offering support and encouragement to one another.
The Essex Association of U3As was set up in 1998 when Chairmen of 10 Essex U3As met together. Since then the Association has gone from strength to strength and now has 56 U3As in its membership.
Membership of the Association is open to all U3As in the County of Essex, and currently the annual subscription is £5.
We organise and run Events such as Quizzes and Study Days and hold Association meetings in Chelmsford in May and November each year. We have put on a Webmasters' Forum, a Website Managers' Workshop and a Finance Workshop. See the Events and Meetings pages for further information.
There is a U3A News Page where Association U3As can post details of their News and upcoming Events.
There is also a list of Speakers recommended by Association U3As which is available to all members via Doug Harryman.
Our objectives are to advance education for the Association members and also provide social interaction between them . We aim to encourage joint leisure activities by facilitating cooperation between U3As, and to promote, inform, help and equip the Essex Association U3A members.
