who we are

U3A Network WA Members Jean Duff, Peter Alcock and Christine Norman

We are the state-wide incorporated body covering all U3As in Western Australia. Most other states in Australia have established a mechanism for fostering interaction between individual groups within their own state, and with the national and international movement. At a meeting held on 4th July, 2012 at the University of Western Australia, U3A Network WA was formed for the same purpose.

It was stressed that each individual club would maintain its own independence and continue to be run by its own Management Committee. Eight of the nine active incorporated U3As across Western Australia volunteered to participate in the communications Network. All new and old clubs are welcome. No club is too small to participate.

WHAT IS OUR MISSION?

  • Promote the U3A movement in Western Australia
  • Facilitate communication between local and national U3A groups
  • Provide support for existing U3A groups and for the formation of new groups
  • Establish connections with local and state government agencies and with other appropriate groups in the community
