Griffith University will put on four lectures during 2019, exclusively for
U3A clubs on the Gold Coast. The topics are varied but always interesting.
Confirmed dates for this year's U3A meetings are:
Friday, 29 March
Friday, 17 May
Friday, 5 July
Friday, 6 September
Friday, 1 November
At the first lecture on 29 March we will be hearing from Professor Catherine Pickering. I understand that the lecture will also included a small walk outside the Chancellery building to point out some rare and threatened plant species.
About Professor Catherine Pickering

The meeting venue is The Leneen Forde Chancellery Building (G34_1.05/1.06) and the schedule is:

2:15pm Presentation by Guest Lecturer
3:00pm Question time
3.15pm Close of lecture
For those who have not attended before, the best way to get to the lecture is by tram. Alight at the Gold Coast University Hospital stop, exit to the left (by lift or stairs) and G34 building is close by. The lecture room is on the ground floor. If coming by car check the university website for parking options. Although the schedule says the lecture starts at 2.15pm they sometimes start a little early so try and be there by 2pm.
