The Association of U3A members was founded in March 1993. The first committee members included Lily Bezzina Wettinger, Helen Borg Bonnici, Victor Coppini, Charles Gruppetta, Alber Naizer, Jane Spiteri, Dr Wilfred Stellini, Paul Muscat Terribile, and Frank Zarb, whose first task was to set up a statute that was consequently approved at the Association's first General Annual Meeting. The statute regulates that a committee's term of office is of two years and that members are elected democratically from the members present at each Annual General Meeting. Persons wishing to contest have to be registered members for the last two years prior to the election year. Registration with the U3A Association is not compulsory for U3A members, but membership in the Association is only open to U3A members. The Association's Statute is available in both English and Maltese.

The U3A Association Committee (2016-2018)


The main purpose of the Association is to organise socio-cultural activities for U3A members. These activities take place on the first on the first and third Fridays of each month. The excursions tend to consist of visits to places of cultural interest both in Malta and in Gozo. In recent years, the Association expanded its geographical horizons by organising cultural trips to Sicily. The Association also organises physical activities, such as Keep Fit Classes, Line Dancing and lately, Ballroom Dancing. Most importantly, it boasts of a choir made up of U3A members who hold rehearsals each Thursday under the leadership of Dame Marie Therese Vassallo. In addition to taking part during the 'First Friday' Mass held on the first Friday of each month, the choir also performs during the annual Christmas Gala Dinner. In recent years, the choir has also been invited to perform at various care homes for older persons, trade union activities, and national event Premju Anzjanita' Attiva
