Join U3A Wellington City

Membership is open to people of the Third Age not in full-time employment, subject to the approval of the U3A Wellington City committee and subject to the payment of the annual subscription. Please be aware that members who join partway through a financial year will need to renew their subscription at the start of the new financial year as there are no pro rata rates.

You can join by one of the following methods: 

  1. Online

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

The link will allow you to enter your information and pay your subscription by credit card.

(Please note that couples who share an email address cannot do this as one transaction. To register a second member, you need to close the screen, click on the link again and repeat the process.)

When you are asked to enter your telephone number, the country will be set to United States. Click on the arrow beside the box and scroll down to New Zealand. Select this option to enable you to enter your NZ telephone number.

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).

Any new member who has not received a green plastic membership card within three to four weeks should contact the Membership Secretary by email to or call Gwen at 382 8296. Cards are ordered from Auckland in batches, so it may take a while before there are sufficient new members for another order to be placed. Your welcome letter will give an indication of the timeframe. The green plastic card is automatically updated annually on renewal of membership.
