BEACON DATABASE FOR U3A GOSPORT MEMBERSHIP
Since the end of 2019 all Membership contact details have been held on Beacon - a secure database designed for use by U3As. This enables Group Leaders to access contact details for their group members. For more information about Beacon see the link to Beacon Information

COMMITTEE MATTERS
All U3As rely on members volunteering to take on roles including joining the committee. The current committee will welcome any member who would like to see what's involved by attending a committee meeting or shadowing a role. We do need members to come forward to join the committee this year - see Committee Nomination Form

U3A GOSPORT POLICIES
We have made a number of our important policies available for members. Many of our policies are guided by the Third Age Trust - our U3A National Organisation.
