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 must include a justification as to why it is needed.

To log in to Beacon go to Beacon Login.

Work on a revised version of Beacon is still under way, although the lockdowns have delayed its introduction.
