Honorary Life Members

According to the Rules of Association of U3A Port Phillip, one category of membership of the organisation is Honorary Life Membership. It is defined as follows:

A Member whose volunteer contribution to the Association, other than any financial contribution, has been both exceptional and sustained over not less than ten years, whether that contribution is by way of tutoring, administration or management, may, on the recommendation of the Committee, be awarded Honorary Life Membership by a majority resolution at a general meeting.

The Committee of Management has delegated the task of selecting potential candidates for the award of an Honorary Life Membership to the Awards Advisory Group. For more details of the Terms of Reference and the process for accepting and assessing nominations, click here.

If there is a member of U3APP whom you think meets the criteria above, you can nominate them for Honorary Life Membership.

Nominations should be emailed to the chairHLMsubcom@u3app.org.au by 31 August for assessment in that year.

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

  • Contact the office in person, or by email or phone.
