U3A Term 1 2020 Newsletter out now

The Term 1 2020 U3A newsletter is OUT NOW and available HERE

U3A Batemans Bay is part of an international organisation which originated in France in 1973. Early U3As were linked to universities and used an academic model. However over time the nature of U3As has changed to be more of a self-help organisation offering affordable learning opportunities to members, using the knowledge, skills and abilities of the members themselves.

There are no qualifications for members and no awards, degrees or diplomas are given. The emphasis is on learning for pleasure in a friendly, supportive and social environment.

The U3A is run by members for members and relies on the voluntary contribution of skills, knowledge and ideas. Their activities are determined by the interests of the members themselves, and by the willingness of members to lead and coordinate activities. They strive to be non-political.

COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available unless the author is known to the editor by way of a verified email address or by association.

Others who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name or Nom de plume for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
