2020 Annual General Meeting

During March this year, South Africa was placed on a national lockdown with restricted social interaction for its citizens to support the world-wide drive to limit the spread of the Covid-19 virus infection.  This implied that we had to re-look our events and social interactions and the way we address it.  To address our support towards the flattening of the Corona-Virus spread, SIOPSA decided to host this year’s Annual General Meeting on a virtual platform.  This way we secure the safety of our members and make it possible for more of our members to attend the session as would be the case with a face-to-face session.
