we will get back to you as soon as possible...............
Our membership management system is called 'Beacon' - the u3a movement’s integrated membership, groups, finance and mailing system.
You can amend the information we hold for you on-line via Beacon and keep your contact details up to date by being able to view and change your own membership record. Keeping your information up to date is important so that Group Leaders can contact you, we can send you our U3A Newsletter and you can be kept informed of events organised by our u3a.
To access Beacon, please click below:-
If you experience any difficulty, please refer to the Guidance Notes below.
To log into your personal account you will need to provide the following information to identify yourself: membership number, forename, surname, postcode and email address. If any of these does not conform exactly to the data held in our database you will not be able to log on.
Guidance Notes for Beacon Login
Please note you should use a leading capital for your Forename and Surname (and the rest of the names lower case) when logging into Beacon. The postcode should be in capitals, with only one space between the two halves of the postcode. Your email address should normally be all lower case.
If you have a problem logging into Beacon, it is likely that something you are entering does not correspond exactly with the data that was originally entered into the database from your paper membership form by our volunteers.
We URGENTLY need more “TEAM PLAYERS” to join us, not only on Committee but also behind the scenes. The people who do volunteer enjoy their roles and feel a part of something very worthwhile – Bournemouth u3a!
Please consider putting your name forward. We would be happy to talk to you in a relaxed setting. I’m sure you’ll find it very rewarding!
