Membership Renewals and Class Enrolments for 2021

Please see below a summary of the membership renewal and class enrolment arrangements for 2021.

As advised by David Jensz in his President’s Report, you will receive special bulletins, as appropriate, updating you on changes to classes and the ongoing functioning of our U3A.

Membership Renewals and Fees

  • Current (2020) U3A Manningham members will not be required to renew their membership for 2021. All memberships will be automatically renewed through our MyU3A system.

  • 2021 membership fees will be waived for 2020 members.

  • New members for 2021 or others who were not members in 2020 will be required to enroll as in the past and will be required to pay the $70 membership fee.

Enrolment in 2021 classes
Although online class enrolments would be possible, because of the COVID-19 restrictions, members will not be able to enrol in person. Therefore, to ensure fairness to all, members will be automatically re-enrolled for 2021 into those classes for which they were enrolled in 2020.
However, there will be instances where this cannot occur, such as:
  • Some classes have been cancelled. Please see a list of those classes.
  • Ongoing COVID-19 restrictions regarding the conduct of some classes. All members will therefore need to check their MyU3A records to see what classes they are enrolled in. Members will be advised when their records have been so updated. Please refer any queries about class enrolments to Curriculum Manager, Milly Ching, on milly.ching@gmail.com.
    There will, of course, be members who wish to change their class enrolments. This will need to be done through the MyU3A system as and when advised by the Enrolments Manager


The following courses will not be offered in 2021.

Whilst we would like every member to be accepted into the classes of their choice, this is sometimes not possible.  Some classes fill up quickly and waiting lists are formed. 
If you are placed on a waiting list for every class you have chosen, you may withdraw your membership by applying for a refund at any time. 
Other classes where the format is progressive may be closed to new comers beyond a set date.
