The Annual General Meeting of Manningham U3A Inc
Details and notice of the Twenty-Ninth AGM to be held at 11am on 28th May 2020 online via Zoom.
In light of the COVID-19 Government Restrictions, this free State Government program is now available for any U3A member to participate from their own home, with the choice of telephone (individual) or online Webinar (group) delivery options. It's a great opportunity for members to stay motivated, focus on their health, and continue learning from home through this State Government Program. These seminars also cover topics which can help improve health conditions that may assist in reducing vulnerability to COVID-19.
With the latest health information available and free literature provided, this may be an opportune time for members to participate in these seminars. This course is also a great chance for members to stay engaged with others, as there is the option for anyone interested to join in along with other U3A members for internet based video education sessions (eg. live Webinars). Alternatively, those who prefer an individualised approach can access private consultations via phone / FaceTime. All this, whilst not having to leave home. This free course is available immediately. Below is an image with details of this course, with the option for members to register by either phoning the number listed or completing the expressions of interest form and emailing it back to us on the email listed.
Now may be the perfect time to participate in this free course.
U3A Manningham 2020 Photography Competition

If your enrolment queries are submitted in either of these ways, they will be received and acted upon promptly.
Membership Fee Refunds
We are always sorry when members are unable to attend their selected classes. If that does occur and you wish to apply for the refund of your membership fee, a request may be submitted at any time during the membership (calendar) year.
Please note that a member will only be eligible for a membership fee refund if he/she has not been accepted into any classes in which he/she has enrolled and is not currently in arrears on any fees payable to U3A Manningham. As well, special or extenuating circumstances (especially early in the membership year) may be considered and must be submitted in writing to the Treasurer either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or a letter which can be left at the office.
Membership refund forms are available from the office or may be downloaded here or from the Course Information Page. Please ensure that the form is properly completed and signed and contains sufficient information for the request to be assessed and processed effectively.
Once a refund has been approved, the membership is revoked and the person will be removed from all waiting lists and will cease to be a member of U3AM, and therefore, will no longer be eligible to attend any classes or organised events of U3AM. Upon membership cessation, a new application will have to made should you decide to rejoin in the future.
