All Cardiff U3A meetings and events are cancelled until further notice. Some groups are meeting online via Zoom or WhatsApp. See 'Staying In Touch' below.

This closure may be extended as deemed necessary - Cardiff is in lockdown from 6pm on 27th September and current expectations are that this will last at least 2-3 weeks.

Annual General Meeting

This is advance notice of the Annual General Meeting of the Cardiff U3A which will take place for the purposes of the Constitution on Thursday 12th November 2020 at 14:00.

There will be a special procedure due to the pandemic restrictions, the details of which are available now.

All papers for the meeting are now available.

Membership Renewals

You will remember that membership has been extended to the end of February 2021 at no extra charge.

However, convincing the Beacon system of this has proved more difficult!

If you login to the Members Portal, you may see a message saying your membership continues to 1st September 2020 but you can renew now. Please ignore this!

And in any case, the option to renew online has been removed until next year...

Convenors using Beacon - you'll find all members are showing in red - ignore this too!
