IMPORTANT - IS OUR INFORMATION UP TO DATE?

Northumbria U3A relies on individual U3As proactively updating their contact details. A form for this purpose can be opened/saved here:
Update Form. If you use LibreOffice software this version might be better: Update Form odt. See below for more details about contact lists.

The Region communicates with the local U3As and with individual members using four email circulation lists. Please check that the information held by the region on your U3A is correct. When there are any changes (especially after your AGMs) please notify us of the changes at: regionalu3alist@gmail.com or click here: Sign up for Regional Info. Or use this form: Update Form.

We need to know the following:

Officers
Please let us have the name and email address of your chairman, vice-chairman, treasurer, business secretary and membership secretary. Please also let us have the postal address of your treasurer as the regional treasurer will occasionally send out mail by post. When notifying us of any changes also please notify national office of any changes. If your U3A is a registered charity, you must notify the Charity Commission of any changes via the Charity Commission website as soon as possible after those changes.

Delegates
Each U3A should appoint two delegates who will represent your U3A at regional meetings and, where a vote is taken, those delegates will vote on behalf of their U3A. This does not prevent any other members of your U3A attending meetings which are open to all, and all members are most welcome. More information can be found on the Meetings page.

Distributors
Each U3A should appoint one member (and a reserve) to receive emailed communications from Northumbria Region U3A. Distributors are responsible for sending out all communications to all members.

Extras by Request
If you prefer to receive regional communications directly, rather than through your U3A's distributor, please email from your own email address. If you no longer want to receive communications directly, please let us know.

The table below shows a list of U3As in the Northumbria Region, divided into geopolitical areas. An explanation of the regional divisions is also shown below. With the exception of two U3As (shown in black type) clicking the name will take you to that U3A's website. See also the map on the Welcome page.

Northumbria Region U3A

Until the eighties, when the boundaries were changed, we could have said that “Northumbria U3A Region includes Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, County Durham and part of North Yorkshire.”

But now, Tyne and Wear does not exist. As long ago as 1986 it was replaced by five unitary authorities (Newcastle, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Sunderland). In addition there are four unitary authorities clustered around the Tees (Recar and Cleveland, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton).

So perhaps it is easier to say we have members in U3As as far north as Berwick and as far south as Bedale!
