SAMA KZN Newsletter
Good day, fellow travelers on life’s highway.
I’m starting this newsletter in a very somber mood because we have had to cancel
the 2016 Regional Conference, mostly for financial reasons. Very, very sorry. I’m
particularly miffed, peeved and put out because I love the Regional Conference, which
is all chummy and family-
HOWEVER – there are some things that absolutely have to happen and one of them is the Annual General Meeting. So we’re going to be very hip, hop and 21st century and do it on line. Yep, the constitution allows it.
Now you may have noticed that some members of the committee have white hair, however

and have decided to step down. This means we’re going to need some younger blood
to represent you – and I bet you know just who would be great in the position. So
print out the attached nomination form and take it along to them for their signature.

How about putting yourself in the programme by telling us what you're doing and who you're helping?
You have a week to get it done. Not that I want to put pressure on you or anything.
There's been a bit of confusion about just who's eligible for the reduced member
rate on the basis of institutional membership. The policy is that, if a museum is
an institutional member with 1-
Be careful out there
Our sympathies go out to Claire Adderley and her staff and Friends for the shock,
loss and damage they sustained when their museum was petrol-
Claire, it's great that your community has rallied around and that the union has condemned the attack. We wish you the best.
Thinking of you
So good to hear that our old friend Gilbert Torlage has been feeling so much better. Lots of love coming your way, Gilbert.
