University of the Third Age

Management Committee

Chairman, Newsletter, Webmaster. 
Joined committee mid-term 2006. Enjoys writing our quarterly newsletter and taught herself enough to design this website though 'webmaster' is a very tongue-in-cheek title. Delegate to U3A South Australia (the State network) and U3A Online, State secretary and State delegate to U3A Alliance Australia (the national network) and national editor. Mastered computing through teaching but continues to show remarkable lack of talent in French.

Vice Chair. Elected at 2017 AGM. Retired schoolteacher, former children’s author and current resident of Riverton, Kath has been a long-term member of the U3A French class. Her attendance is punctuated by frequent travel. A lover of books, music and cruising, obsessive quilter and self-described pedant.


Secretary.  Elected at 2017 AGM. A retired engineer, Ian is a newcomer to Clare. He arrived with a high regard for U3A as his late mother was a member of U3A Noarlunga. Ian attends History and Current Affairs. After a spell as assistant secretary, Ian stepped up to the main job in February 2020.


Treasurer. Appointed at 2013 AGM. Peter is an active and invaluable member of many local organisations including the Riesling Trail and the Clare Valley Business and Tourism Association. Member of U3A Bridge and Current Affairs groups. 2019 Clare Citizen of the Year.

Course Co-ordinator. Elected at 2017 AGM as committee person. A retired electrical engineer, Peter is not currently a member of any groups but in the past has favoured those with an academic bent such as geology. Peter took on this present position at the 2019 AGM.


after the resignation of two valued members due to changed family circumstances.
