Gaye Mason

I have been a member of U3APP since at least 2017 and have very much enjoyed learning from the wonderful volunteers who give their time so generously.  Being mostly retired now gives me the opportunity to contribute to the management committee as my way of saying thank you and giving back in a meaningful way.

Albert Park has been home for the last 25 years, but I have lived in the city of Port Phillip for 40 years. I am a member of two local tennis clubs and have been on both management committees, play Bridge with my husband Bob Snell, am in my 5th year of Beginner’s French at U3A, belong to two book clubs, and am a regular attendee at the theatre and classical music concerts.

My professional background is in finance and governance, with qualifications in Accounting, IT, Corporate Governance, and being a graduate of the AICD Director’s course. Being an FCPA, FAICD, FGIA, FCG, and with an MBA helps explain my commitment to life-long learning and my interest in U3A’s course offerings.  Since retiring from my executive career I have been a director on a number of Victorian Government boards, Agencies and Audit & Risk committees.

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.
  • OR is the course shown as FULL?
    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.

Via the Office: after bookings have opened
