It is almost time for the LIASA Conference 2010.
For all members:-
If you have not voted in the 2010 elections, you only have a few days in which to do this. The President of LIASA will be from the Western Cape and the Branch also has the opportunity to have the National PRO hailing from this Branch. Nazeem Hardy, previous Branch Chair and current EXCO member is up for election in this portfolio. Make your voice heard by voting in the election for National PRO.
Voting closes on Tuesday 28 September at 12:00. Ballot papers can be faxed to 012 323 1033. Alternatively, ballot papers can be handed to colleagues attending Conference.
For those attending the LIASA Conference 2010:-
The Western Cape Branch has made it a tradition of taking a Western Cape group photograph and this year will be no different. We are hoping to have this photo taken on the Wednesday, 29th September. We will announce further details at the Conference.
