SAAA Business Planning

The current National Council was elected 26 November 2016. In the absence of any plan or functional structure at this time, a Business Plan for the 2nd half of FY1617 was prepared and has been in operation since approved in January 2017. This plan will be re-worked for the FY1718 around May / June 2017. In the meantime, the 2nd Half FY1617 Business Plan available here represents the current status of this plan; this will be updated periodically.  Here

Policy Discussion with Members continued:



5th Feb at 01:30 UTC.  Chapter Presidents & Members webinar. Proceed as planned .  5 Chapters attended.



Dear Members,

We will be hosting the third “President – Chapter Discussion Forum” this coming Saturday at 02:00hrs UTC using the Zoom conferencing software.  We have adjusted the prior planned day / time in an endeavor to find perhaps a more convenient time that suits more Members.

We will also trial inviting individual Members to participate, in addition to the Chapter group participation. This is of course designed to make it more practical for Members to participate. We have increased the participant capacity of the Zoom conferencing software to 100. We hope this will be adequate, but we would nevertheless encourage as many Members to participate as part of Chapter groups as this should improve discussion dynamics and ease of managing discussion. But, all participants will need to be careful to avoid background noise, moving their computers / laptops / tablets as the cacophony of background sound from up to 100 participants will like





Members are reminded to contact the Chapter President & Secretary to find out where your Chapter is meeting to participate in the Webinar.

Members not part of a Chapter group should contact the Admin office to get details on how to participate.
