U3A is the University of the Third Age, which is the age of active retirement, coming after the age of youth and working life.
University is taken in its original meaning a “community of teachers and scholars” - there are no academic requirements for membership and no exams!
U3A is a worldwide organization for retired or semi-retired persons over 50. U3A courses/activities cover interests such as Sport, Family History, Exercise, Philosophy, Photography, The Arts, Language, Technology, Lunch Groups, Travel, Dance, Geology, History, Health, Music, Craft and Writing.

A role exists with the U3A in Toowoomba Management Committee for an Assistant Treasurer. Ideally the volunteer will have an accounting background. However the accounts are kept using 'Reckon', an online accounting package, and training would be available for a person interested in being a part of the ongoing smooth running of U3A in Toowoomba. Please email President Rhonda Weston or Treasurer Trish Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
