How to join

Interested in joining?

To join complete the membership application form available to download at apply to join u3a link or contact the membership secretary via the Contact page.

Alternatively, you are very welcome to try a meeting without being a member; you can meet us at a monthly meeting (usually the first Thursday of the month, 2.30pm at Melbourne Assembly Rooms) and/or attend a group with the group leaders agreement.

The annual membership fee is £16.00 (this has been frozen for 2022).
Associate membership is £10.00 if you are a paid up member of another u3a.

Members are issued a membership card with a unique number. You will need to give this number at any MADu3a meeting/group you attend.

Membership fees cover the running costs of MADu3a (including subscriptions, printing, room hire and some speakers for the monthly members' meetings); they also pay for the Third Age magazine and a levy to the national u3a. Fees do not cover the cost of running the groups; often a small charge is made (eg £2 per meeting) to cover room hire and refreshments.
