u3a - Beacon reaches huge milestone

 Beacon, the management system for u3as created and run by members, has just reached a milestone: 500 u3as using the system.

Headington u3a are the 500th u3a to join. When asked how they feel about this, they responded, "surprised, delighted and quite proud of ourselves." They joined Beacon with the hope of "streamlining Headington u3a's organisation and adopt an easy to use system which will be reliable for our records, currently and in the future." 

Beacon is a all-in-one system for u3as to manage membership, groups, finances and sending emails. It is run and supported by a team of u3a volunteers.

Discover more about the benefits of Beacon and how to join on the Beacon website.

Read from u3as about their experiences using Beacon on our u3a blog, Sources, where you can also discover what it's like to be one of the volunteers who support Beacon.
