Registration for SAACI 2017 is now open! Registration is managed through an online system, and all participants must register. The Social programme tickets can be booked at the same time.

Building on the success of the 2016 Congress, where SAACI was able to support Green Pop and plant trees, as part of SAACI’s 30th Anniversary celebrations, we are are launching a Legacy Project. R150 of each participant’s registration fees will be donated to one of SAACI’s CSI initiatives. Participants will have the option to select which programme they would like to support, either the SAACI Trust (fund for congress support/bursary) or GreenPop Tree. Participants may also show their support by bringing book donations for the Nelson Mandela Book Foundation.

Upon receipt of your online registration form and payment (or credit card details), the SAACI 2017 Congress Secretariat will confirm your participation in the SAACI 2017 Congress with a formal confirmation and invoice.
