Membership Criteria

Eligibility

Individual members of the C3A may be of any nationality who are in their Third Age (meaning the period after the first age of childhood dependence and after the second age of full-time work and/or parental responsibility) and who are no longer in full-time employment.

Not-for-profit organisations that are interested in furthering the work of the C3A may also become members.

All members need to be interested in furthering the work of the C3A and agree to abide by the Constitution and Regulations and pay their annual subscription.

Is there an age limit?

No, there is no lower (or upper) age restriction on C3A membership; anyone of any age may join.

However, it’s unlikely that those without free time on their hands during the working day could enjoy the full benefits of membership as most of our groups meet during the day. Nevertheless, this does not prevent them from joining the C3A if they wish.

What sort of people join the C3A?

The C3A is for all people who wish to keep their minds and bodies in good shape with the passing years. Their previous experiences – jobs, qualifications, achievements, etc. – are irrelevant. The C3A welcomes everyone and gives all-comers the opportunity to try out exciting new things.
