Who would have thought at the time of the SASOG congress in March that the world would be turned upside down in the matter of a few weeks? The COVID pandemic has taken over our lives affecting all of us in various aspects and spheres of our existence.
One of the biggest impacts is on an economic and financial level and we realise that all of us will have to prepare for quite a substantial loss of income. We would like to assist in that regard by granting a two-month membership fee holiday to all members. This means that the May and June membership contributions of SASOG, GMG and SAPPF will be waived. We trust that this small gesture will help to reduce the financial pressure experienced by our members.
The detail of how this discount will be implemented will be communicated next week. We will also send out an updated COVID-19 guideline soon.
With best wishes
