Dear SAAPAM Members and Conference Delegates
New dates for the conference
In the occasion of the State of the Nation of Address (SONA) on the 7th February 2019, Republic of South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa expressed that
“after consultations with Independent Electoral Commission and also the Premiers of all provinces, I intend to proclaim 8th May 2019 as the election day”.
The day chosen by the State President coincide with our conference dates. We therefore change dates of the conference to the 14-17 May 2019. The venue remains unchanged.
It is important for our delegates to exercise their democratic right in participating in the upcoming national and provincial elections.
We sincerely hope that our new dates will be well received and considered.
