Welcome to Kempsey Macleay Valley U3A Incorporated
We are back for Term 1 in 2021 and almost back to normal again.
We had very successful enrolment days at both Kempsey and South West Rocks.
Please NOTE: The date for the 2021 KMVU3A AGM has CHANGED.
It is now at 5pm, Monday 8th March 2021 at the Kempsey Macleay RSL Club.
The Newsletter shows Tuesday 9th March. This is WRONG.
This new website is still very much a work-in-progress.
To access the Newsletter and other Member related topics online, you will now have to Login via our new Member Area.
All members with email access should have received their Newsletter and Enrolment Form by email.
A sanitised version of our latest Newsletter can be accessed here.
This version has all the latest news and course information for the current term
and is the same Newsletter our members receive except that all contact information
apart from our general email address has been removed for security reasons.
If you are a new Member, or an existing Member and have forgotten the details, please email email@example.com and request assistance.
Wondering about our websites and passwords?
What’s the difference?
(You can download a printable "Cheat Sheet" from the Member Area)
This one kempseymacleayu3a.com.au is our local website, administered and cared for by our volunteer IT guru, where members can find our constitution, notices, current committee details, membership and enrolment forms for you to print out, our newsletter archive and links to electronic resources.
Because this website is visible to anyone in the world and their computer, unpleasant people and their bots have searched it to access information such as personal details of committee members. So, last year we added another layer to the website, a “Members Only" area that needed to be accessed by a login and a password. This is the login: member-at-kempseymacleayu3a.com.au. (Replace the "-at-" with "@") The password was the same for everyone, and was sent out through the omail system.
The Newsletters will now be sent as an email attachment so we will not need to access the website to see the term timetable, but there will still be a reduced version there for members to access.
The second one: myu3a.net/KempseyMacleay is our link to a separate on line database administered centrally in Melbourne and used by most U3A groups in Australia. This is where members and potential members can see what classes are on offer locally, can join or renew their membership and can enrol in classes and pay for them using PayPal. Members without a PayPal account can pay through Coastline Credit Union, either electronically or at a branch. The data admin team can reconcile credit union payments with the database, although it helps if you add your name when making a deposit! The admin team enter all of the names from the paper forms filled in on enrolment days or posted to us. Class leaders also have access to a tutor portal where they can see who has enrolled in a class, and can print out attendance sheets. When you first join, the database sends you your member ID and a password. This ID number is also on the class attendance lists. It’s a good idea to write these down somewhere. (Please do not confuse them with the generic member login and password for our local website.)
It is very easy to enrol on line, particularly during these social distancing times.
If anyone would like some assistance to enrol online, once again, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
