How to join Stourbridge U3A

If you are no longer in full-time employment and looking for interesting and stimulating daytime activities in the company of others, then joining Stourbridge U3A could be just what you are looking for.

Full membership of Stourbridge U3A entitles members to:

• attend each monthly meeting throughout the year at no extra charge
• join as many interest groups as the member chooses (provided there is space available) A fee of
£1 per session is payable at all U3A organised meetings/events unless a higher amount has been
agreed by the committee for a particular group.
• arrange to go on “taster” visits to see what goes on in other interest groups before deciding to
join that particular interest group
• receive newsletters as available and Third Age Matters and Sources magazines at no extra charge.

All members are expected to :
• abide by the Aims and Guiding Principles of the U3A movement
• always act in the best interests of the U3A and never do anything to bring the U3A into
• abide by the terms and conditions of the constitution
• show their membership cards when required to do so
• treat fellow members with respect and courtesy at all times
• advise the committee of any change in your personal details.

Disabled members may be accompanied by a regular carer (free of charge).

Should members of other U3As wish to join Stourbridge U3A and attend monthly meetings and/or interest groups they are entitled to become fully paid up Associate members of Stourbridge. This entitles you to a reduced fee as your other U3A has already paid a contribution on your behalf to National Office which includes U3A liability insurance cover.

Visitors, i.e. non-members, are welcome to attend a maximum of any three Stourbridge U3A events in any one membership year. i.e. Monthly meetings, Interest Groups, outings or social events. Visitors pay a £2 fee to attend monthly meetings or interest groups. Outings and social events are subject to a separate fee dependent on the activity.
