23DIS003 Tuesday Lunch Time Forums

Members are welcome to join this course at any time. Each session is a different subject.

U3A Canberra has invited U3A-SP to join them in these Guest Speaker forums. (Canberra would be a wonderful place to source a guest speaker so the subjects should be varied and entertaining. It is held via zoom so you will require the use of wi-fi a tablet, computer, or phone. The zoom code will be the same week to week, and you can pick the subjects that interest you.

Subject will be forwarded to you in advance so you can plan your attendance.

“Restricted” members are invited to enrol.

Note: U3A ACT has been able to access experts from local tertiary institutions (for example: Australian National University; University of Canberra; and Australian Catholic University) and current and retired senior Commonwealth Government officials (e.g., Ministers, policy advisors, ambassadors). Being online we also engage speakers from interstate.
