How to join WPU3A

So, you like what you have heard and seen so far of Watford Park U3A and you have decided you would like to become a member. What should you do next?

The process is very simple. You need to make contact with the Membership Secretary providing your name and email address, saying you would like to join. You can do this via the Contact page. Click the bullet next to EC Membership Secretary.

What happens next? The Membership Secretary will get back to you with a response. Ideally, you will be sent a membership application form immediately. Provided you submit it promptly you will be given a place.

Alternatively, you may be asked to wait a while until a place becomes available for you. The Membership Secretary will delay sending you an application form until there is room. In effect you will be placed on our waiting list. We have to operate this way because our membership numbers are high and run close to the capacity of our regular meeting venue. Be assured that the Membership Secretary and the Executive Committee regularly review membership numbers and we try to keep any waiting time as short as possible.

The membership subscription is currently £16.50 a year and our membership year starts on 1st November. The subscription is pro rata’d if you join mid-year. The Membership Secretary will advise you of the appropriate subscription.

As soon as the application process has completed and the Membership Secretary has confirmed your membership you are free to attend monthly meetings (4th Tuesday 3pm at St Lukes, Langley Way) and to participate in the many activities offered, principally through our study group activities. The website and our monthly Newsletter provide details and contact points for all our study groups.

We hope too that you will feel you want to put something into Watford Park U3A, to help perpetuate its appeal and its success. If there is an activity you would like to do that isn’t available then why not start it yourself? The Study Group Co-ordinator will be pleased to help you advertise and launch a new study group. That’s how everything started up and the reason Watford Park U3A is able to offer all its members such a choice of opportunities.
