The LIASA BEC and many committee members of the various interest groups active in the Western Cape got together today at the Drakenstein Library, Paarl, to discuss LIASA Western Cape matters and to plan the year ahead. Members are going to be spoilt for choice when they see all the exciting activities planned! Watch the blog and your email for news of what's happening. Check the branch webpage for the branch diary for 2006 which will now also include the dates of committee meetings of the various interest groups.

It was also noted that this is an election year so June andJuly will be busy months for interest group AGMs. The Branch AGM is scheduled for 2 August.
It was a good bonding and team-building event and much work was done. Thanks to Tommy Matthee, President of LIASA, and the staff of Drakenstein and Paarl Libraries for hosting the branch.
