Melbourne Area Derby

How to join

Interested in joining?

To join complete a member application form (available to download at the 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 fee covering the year from April 2021 to March 2022 is £16.00.
Associate membership is £10.00 if you are a paid up member of another u3a.

(NB the annual fee remains the same regardless of the month it is paid.)

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.
