Beacon Help

Guidance on how to use the Beacon membership database.

Membership Portal

This is the way for Craven U3A members to access the records we hold. They can then amend/update the record. The can also get a list of groups and a calendar of dates. During the enrolment/renewal period they can also renew membership on-line, which is very helpful to our volunteer helpers.

Group Leaders

There is a separate log on for Group Leaders which provides a number of functions to help them administer their Group. Help and training is available at the annual training meeting. For help at other times contact datamanager@cravenu3a.org.uk

Web Based Training

There are some web-based interactive guides which simulate how to use Beacon. Click on the button below for access.

Beacon Web Site Training materials.

There are a number of training guides on the national Beacon Web Site. But these are aimed more at System administrators than U3A members so are of little use to the general membership.
