Our financial year ends on 30 June 2018 and membership will need to be renewed. Detailed instructions about how to renew your subscription are given below.

Membership renewals for 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019

The annual subscription for the 1 July 2018 – 30 June 2019 financial year remains at $35 per member.

Three methods are available for renewing your subscription:

  1. Online

From 1 June 2018 existing members who are on the email reminder list will be progressively emailed a personalised link to the Wellington U3A database to enable them to renew their membership and pay online. Please note that couples cannot do this as one transaction – you must wait for each of your individual personalized renewal links.

Click on the link and it 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).

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

  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

 Your current membership card will be updated on receipt of payment and can continue to be used for scanning when attending lectures.

Any members who have not paid by 31 August 2018 will be removed from the database and charged a $5 visitor fee to attend a lecture.

If you experience problems with the renewal process please contact the Membership Secretary, Gwen Levick, on phone 382 8296 or send an email to
