Gauteng Chapter News (July 2011)

Those of you that attended the Congress in May will know that the Gauteng Chapter was awarded the Elise Michau trophy for the chapter that showed the most progress over the past two years. Wow!! What an achievement! Not only did the Chapter Board do their best to bring you controversial and interesting topics at study days, but YOU the members gave us your ongoing support, and for that we say THANK YOU! However that is only the beginning! We have to absolutely do it again in 2 Years time! So make sure you keep up the good work.
