How does U3A Port Phillip work?

U3APP has an Executive comprising the President, Deputy President, Secretary and Treasurer. They are part of the Committee of Management (CoM). Current Office-bearers and CoM members are listed here.  You can view a photo and a short bio of each of the current CoM members here.

Our Association Rules can be downloaded here.

One of the roles of the COM is to undertake Strategic Planning for U3APP. Read our current Strategic Plan here.  In order to find out more about our members and their needs, a Member Survey was conducted in 2014. The results can be viewed here.

The COM has defined a number of  policies, in the Policies and Procedures Manual.  Our Emergency Management Plan can be viewed here.

U3APP is entirely run by over 100 volunteers, working in teams. The diagram below shows how our volunteers work together to keep U3A Port Phillip strong and steady.

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
