At the time of reporting, 877 members have renewed their subscriptions to 30 June 2019. Of these, 65% have paid by credit card, 23% through internet banking and 12% by cheque. Members who have not yet renewed their subscription have until the end of August to do so, after which their membership will expire.

A reminder that the following methods may be used for renewing subscriptions ($35.00):

  1. Online using the personalised link that was emailed to members during June

We would greatly appreciate your using this method as it enables changes and payments to be recorded directly on the database. This significantly reduces the workload of the membership secretary.

Please note that couples need to renew separately each using their own personalized renewal link.

Click on the link which will take you to your current record on the database, allowing you to update your information and pay your subscription by credit card. The payment screen will make reference to a PayPal account. You should follow the credit card option (you do not need to create/have a PayPal account). When asked for your telephone number, click on the down arrow next to the block which says ‘United States’ and select New Zealand from the list of countries, then enter your number and continue following the instructions on screen.

  1. Internet banking

Make an internet banking payment to the Westpac Account 03-1540-0009019-01, including your name and phone number as reference.

  1. Cheque

Mail a cheque for $35 to U3A Wellington City Inc, PO Box 24529, Manners Street, Wellington 6142. Include your full name and phone number.

New cards are no longer issued annually as the current green plastic card is updated on renewal.

Please feel free to contact me by email to or by telephone on 382 8296 if you have any membership queries or need assistance with the online payment.
