This is a call for all SAGA members to renew their membership for 2012 as soon as possible – preferably before 01 January 2012. All membership fees for 2012 have remained unchanged from 2011: R100,00 in general, but R50,00 for full time tertiary students and R20.00 for primary or secondary school pupils. Your renewed membership will be valid for the 2012 calendar year. 2011 memberships will expire on 31 December. Details for how to renew your membership are available on the SAGA general information page (see the section: Joining SAGA/renewing your membership).
New members are also welcome to join for 2012 now. Membership is required for participation in the national tournaments co-ordinated by SAGA (the SA Open, SA Closed, and the quarterly internet tournaments on KGS). Also, only members earn credit points to qualify to represent South Africa at various international tournaments. From 2012, members will hopefully also receive the members-only edition of the AGA newsletter, if they wish. To this end can all renewing their membership or applying for first time membership please email the membership secretary with their current preferred email address
Finally, we are working on updating the SAGA credit points list for 2011. In order to receive credit points for 2011, you need to have been a member in 2011. The list we are using for this purpose is the one at http://www.sagoclubs.co.za/saga/saga-membership-list/. Please check whether your name is listed as a 2011 member on this list, and contact me if you should be listed, but aren’t.
