All face-to-face classes are cancelled for the remainder of term 3. Events planned for September including monthly lunches, Trivia Day, Forum, and Volunteers lunch are also cancelled. A number of classes have successfully resumed on Zoom and they will continue as normal.
The delta variant of Covid has been a game-changer. Consequently, the outlook for Term 4 (commencing Monday, October 4) is problematic. We now know that the relaxation of lockdown won’t happen until we achieve vaccination targets. The re-opening date will depend entirely on health advice and the requirements for use of Moonee Valley Council facilities.
U3A Moonee Valley Incorporated is a voluntary, not-for-profit community organisation which provides educational programs to promote healthy, active ageing and opportunities for lifelong learning. Membership is open to anyone over 50 years who is retired or semi-retired.
Moonee Valley Region U3A, now known as U3A Moonee Valley, was established in 1997 for people of the third age (active retirement), to learn new skills, share knowledge and experiences and socialise in a relaxed, informal learning environment.
Courses cater to a wide range of interests. Classes are held in various locations throughout Moonee Valley, which is located in the inner north west of the Melbourne metropolitan area. U3A Moonee Valley gratefully acknowledges Moonee Valley City Council for the provision of community halls, rooms, neighbourhood houses and centres at low cost.
Rules of Association
During 2013-14, the Committee of Management reviewed and amended the organisation’s Statement of Purpose and Rules of Association (Constitution) in order to comply with the new Associations Incorporation Reform Act 2012.
The Rules prescribe such matters regarding membership applications, subscriptions, resignation and expulsion of members, disputes and mediation, the committee of management, meetings, elections and management of finances.
The new Rules were approved by Consumer Affairs Victoria, effective from 6 August 2014.
