Annual Membership is from January to December each year. Cost is $65. An “Early Bird” fee of $55 is available for current members renewing their membership before a set date (see Calendar for date of “Early Bird” expiry).
(If joining on or after 1 July, cost is $35).
To be a member you must be a retiree (or semi-retired).
Upon joining, you will be provided with a Welcome Pack, which includes the annual course book, all newsletters for the current year, information about our Organisation, and details on how to join classes. You may attend as many classes as you wish.
Membership of U3A in Toowoomba Inc. does not guarantee a place in the class of your first choice. If a class is full, members are often able to be placed on a waiting list. While waiting, they are free to join any other available classes. There is a term fee for courses, depending on venue. Instructions on How to Join U3A in Toowoomba Inc. are Included in your Course Book.
NOTE: We can only accept membership payment for the current year. Applications received late in the year for the following year will be processed after 1st January. If you wish to pay for the new calendar year, please wait until or after 1st January. If mailing a cheque, send it to our postal address late in December and we will process it in the New Year.
