Welcome to Mana U3A Inc.

Site Updated 10th April 2023

Our group is part of a nation-wide organization founded in 1982 with the aim of providing a learning for life structure specifically for those in the older age group and no longer in full-time employment.  We confer no degrees but study and learn for the fun of it. Mana U3A was established in 1991.  Our current membership of some 150 comes from Tawa in the south to Otaki in the north.

Our annual programme includes four quarterly meetings which normally feature a guest speaker.  In addition, members variously participate in interest groups. These groups generally meet in the friendly atmosphere of private homes with individual members actively involved in organising or leading groups.

A current annual membership costs $10 pa. There are no course fees as such but the costs of any resources used are shared by the course participants.

If you are interested in joining Mana U3A please contact our President: Kay Phillips 027 975 8569
