The U3A ethos
The U3A is not a service-provider. It is a mutual aid organisation to which everyone is expected to contribute. Its success depends on the willingness of members to volunteer and help out in whatever way they can by:

  • starting new groups
  • giving talks
  • assisting in the running of a group
  • participating actively in the groups they join
  • becoming a committee member
  • doing other tasks to assist the smooth running of the Evesham U3A.

Privacy
In order for you to benefit from U3A membership, certain information - e.g. your name and contact details - has to be made available to the organisation. Following the introduction of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018, all members will, on the membership form, be asked to consent to the use, within our U3A, of their personal data held by us, and to share it with specified third parties as explained in our Data Protection Policy and Privacy Policy. You should be asked if you wish to appear in any photographs used to publicise or report on our U3A; be aware that you have the right to refuse.

Membership Conditions
It is a condition of membership that you abide by the Constitution, codes and policies of Evesham & District U3A where applicable to you, as defined below:
