U3A Nunawading is a friendly place, but with so many members it can be hard to keep up with what’s happening.
Here are some hints on how to keep in touch.
Your name tag
Remember to wear your name tag at all times when in the Hub. Make sure your emergency contacts are listed on the back of the name tag – this helps us look after you if you have an accident at U3A.
If you are a new member and came personally to enrol you should have received your name tag. If you joined online, please ensure you come in and ask for a name tag.
Check your emails
If we need to contact you, we will normally do this through email, so please make sure you check your emails regularly and if you change your email address, let us know.
- If you are a new member, you should have received a confirmation email after you enrolled.
- If you are on a waiting list for a class, look out for an email saying you are accepted into the class. If you haven’t received that email, you are still on the waiting list.
- Our monthly newsletter is sent by email. This keeps you informed of events and other news, so we encourage you to read it in full.
Check our website
Our website (u3anunawading.org.au) is the place to go for information about us. The website has all our newsletters and announcements, a list of all our courses and a login area where you can manage your enrolment and register an apology if you are going to miss a class (see this article about how to register your apology).
Connect with us on social media
If you use Facebook, request to join our Members Only U3A Nunawading Facebook group (facebook.com/groups/615090622678351/).
New Member Morning Tea
There will be a New Member Morning Tea in late February to help new members get to know each other. If you are a new member, you will receive an email closer to the date with the details.
There’s also a ‘Welcome to U3A Nunawading’ booklet. This includes important information about U3A, your membership benefits, and additional details you might need. As a new member, make sure you get a copy.
