Please support Western Cape candidates for National Office

National elections are coming up and you should shortly receive details of all the nominations including the ballots in the mail. Information is now available via the LIASA website.

It is your right as a 2006 paid-up member to have your say in the ongoing development, direction and growth of LIASA by exercising your vote and electing the national executive committee of LIASA.

Since the inception of LIASA almost 10 years ago, there has been at least one member of the national executive from the Western Cape -- almost a tradition! A very strong indication of the leadership skills and talent that the branch has to offer the national association and this year is no different.

*Three* Western Cape branch members have been nominated for portfolios at national level.

Please support the following nominations:

* Tommy Matthee as President. He is currently serving as President of LIASA.

* Naomi Haasbroek as President-Elect. She has just completed her term as Branch Chair.

* Ingrid Thomson as National PRO. She has just served two terms as Branch PRO.

Full details of all the nominations, including cvs and manifestos, and ballots are on the LIASA home page. These will also be shortly winging their way into your postbox.

Completed ballots can either be faxed through or posted to the national office.

To make it easy for you to get your completed ballot to the national office before the closing date (12 pm on 27th September), Western Cape members going to the LIASA conference are willing to collect ballots (in sealed envelopes) and drop them in the ballot box at conference.

Watch your email for names and contact details of colleagues going to conference.
