We have decided to extend the Beacon User Forum to all U3As, regardless of whether or not they are using Beacon yet, so that it can be used as a place for U3A members to share ideas and support each other.
In response to the ongoing situation relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Beacon Team and the Third Age Trust are taking a number of steps which are described in this post.
Beacon supporters from all over the country met in Birmingham to learn about Beacon Upgrade, to help plan the rollout and to see it in action.
West Lothian U3A became the 400th to benefit from Beacon. Meet their membership secretary, Helen Duffin, to hear how it went.
A link to the latest User Guide has been added to the footer of this site.
On 27th February a Beacon presentation will be held in Newton Abbott for U3As in Devon which do not yet use Beacon.
February will bring significant improvements to the way Beacon handles ledgers, with renamed fields, improved sorting and better handling of credit batches.
