SASFED SGM Minutes - Approved & Recording

The following was received today from SASFED. DFA is an active member of SASFED, and has three of its members and one of its board on the current SASFED board.

You may have received a copy of the minutes of our SASFED SGM on the 14th of May 2009 via E-Mail. This e-mail invited comment and corrections to the minutes by Monday the 18th of May. Only one correction was received and so today we are happy to publish and make public:

  1. The minutes of the SASFED SGM of Saturday the 9th of May 2009.
  2. A recorded version of the entire meeting as seperate MP3 audio files per "Agenda Item", kindly provided by Digby Young.

A reminder of the notice in the e-mail of the 18th of May that the upcoming SASFED AGM is scheduled for Saturday the 20th of June 2009, from 14h00 - 17h00 at the same venues as the SGM in Cape Town and Johannesburg. All are welcome to attend, but votes are restricted to the ONE elected representative from each industry organisation who is a full, approved member organisation. This group of representatives becomes known as "The Committee" and nominates (ASAP) those who will stand to be elected to a new board. While you are electing your industry organisations representative (The Committee)... why not also come up with names of nominees (up to 11). They should not all be from your organisation (in fact only one may be from your organisation), but rather people to trust to be on the board.

Looking forward to a new stronger, more united SASFED!
