There are two ways to join or renew membership of u3a Dacorum. They are: the online web form (easy and preferred with a simple bank transfer) and the editable PDF form (for those who wish to pay by cheque).
If you choose the editable PDF form, and your browser only allows you to read PDF forms, please download and save the PDF form before using an editor like Adobe Reader to complete it, save it, and attach it to an email to the Membership Secretary.
We have two annual membership fee levels: Single at £12.00 and Joint for two people at the same address at £22.00.
For both types of membership, optional Group News emails, and a copy of the u3a Dacorum quarterly Digest will be received by post at each separate address.
The Third Age Matters (TAM) magazine (screen reader version) is available online here. Paper copies can be requested at an additional charge to cover postage. Contact the Membership Secretary for details.
The renewal date for all members is 1st April each year. If you join between 1 January and 31 March, then the fee above is payable and renewal is not required until the 1 April of the following year.
Note: Several banks now try to check the name of the account that you are paying into. However, our bank, Metro does not yet participate in this scheme.
Anyone, including members of other u3as, may attend two meetings before becoming a member of u3a Dacorum. Everyone, even a visitor, has to pay the normal meeting fee. This is typically £2.00 or £3.00 for hall meetings and £1.00 for home meetings.
The instructions are included on each Gift Aid form. Should you wish to include Gift Aid, click here to download the ‘gift aid’ form.
We only use your data to manage the contract we have with you. We pass data to:
- The membership card producer, so that they can put your name on it.
- The Third Age Matters magazine, if you pay for postage, so that they can deliver it to you.
- The Digest printer, so that they can post it to you.
- HMRC for tax purposes.
If you are a group coordinator, we will provide you with a dedicated group email address and also ask you which, if either, of your name and phone number you wish to have displayed. If neither, we will refer members to the Digest.
We check the privacy statements of all the website tools we use and only use tools that do not collect data about you. Download our Privacy Statement here.
