Annual membership of Teesdale U3A is £15.00, due by the end of February each year. This includes £3.50 capitation fee paid to the National Office to cover such things as insurance, licensing of media, and the quarterly Third Age Matters magazine. If you are a member of another U3A your subscription is only £11.50 as the capitation fee will already have been paid. Insurance covers all members. People thinking of joining are also covered for one visit to a meeting or activity.
The remainder of the fee covers local costs such as printing, postage and room hire for general and committee meetings. It does not subsidise group activities.
The financial year ends in February and the subscription paid by those joining between September and February covers the following year as well.

When transport is needed car sharing is often organised, in which case it is expected that everyone will contribute appropriately to the cost.
