Dear Members of the Society
Its time again for a change of the SASHT Executive and after three years of loyal service by all our executive and portfolio as well as regional members, we have to continue to ensure transparency in our election process and work towards a continuous refreshed focus. We therefore invite you to nominate another member of the Society (or even yourself but through another nominator), to be electable. If you want to see change you must indeed be the changing factor.
As per nomination form attached or available on the SASHT fb and website, the deadline for nominations are 10 August. See the outline on the nomination form for more information on the process forward which we would appreciate to finalise by the time of the ISHD International Conference in joint cooperation with the SASHT between 13-15 September in Vanderbijlpark. The conference programme, mind you, is loaded and stunning! Hope to see you there.
