Dear PSSA Conference 2014 Delegates and Visitors

Wishing you all a wonderful 2014!

With less than two weeks until the Conference, there are just a few things to inform (remind) you of:

Please could all the South African delegates try and have their registration fees transferred by the middle of next week, as we have financial obligations to meet for the venues. For international delegates we ask that you pay at the conference. Please also fill out and send back your registration forms so that we have necessary emergency numbers and dietary preferences – by Wednesday the 15th January please.

If you look at the programme, you will see that the PSSA AGM is on Monday night, the 20thJanuary, from 17:00. If anyone who is NOT staying at the Bloem Spa would like to stay for dinner after the AGM, please contact Bloem Spa ( in advance to arrange it.
