Starting with the 2019-2020 membership year, we are using the U3A Beacon tool to manage our Members and groups data. We may later extend our Beacon use to include Finance. We may also provide a members portal into Beacon so that members can view and edit their own personal information and join or renew membership online. See the Beacon Website for further information on Beacon.

As Beacon contains personal data about members, access to it other than by the members portal is strictly limited. Requests for access should be made to the Harpenden u3a Webmaster (who is also the Beacon Administrator). Requests must explain what level of access is needed with a justification as to why it is needed.

To log in to Beacon go to Beacon Login.

Work on updates, enhancements and bug fixes of Beacon still continues although planning for a replacement has started.
