General Meeting (AGM)
The SAIS AGM will be held mid September 2020. Please keep an eye on
your inbox for our official invitation.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
SAIS has extended the 2019/2020 CPD cycle to 31 August 2020.
The 2020/2021 CPD cycle will run from 1 September 2020 to 31 May
2021 and CPD hours will be calculated on 9 months instead of 12.
The 30 hours CPD requirement will be pro-rated for the 2020/21 CPD
year only, resulting in a total CPD hour requirement of 22 hours
for the 2020/21 CPD year. This means that any CPD hours logged as
completed between 1 June and 31 August 2020 will be allocated to
the 2019/2020 CPD cycle.
Those needing a few more hours to meet their 2019/20 CPD
requirement, will be glad to know that SAIS launched their own CPD
offerings, through its online learning platform, earlier this
quarter. These complement the current CPD offering. There are
currently 8 courses, freely available to SAIS members in good
standing. All courses are verifiable and include a short-question
based assessment. CPD courses currently running:
eye on our website for new courses.
Members will shortly receive an indication of the hours that they
have logged thus far. Unfortunately, a large portion of the
membership have logged less than 10 CPD hours for the 2019/20 year.
Members are reminded that the SAIS requirement is 30 CPD hours per
annum, with 20 hours spent on structured CPD and 10 on
unstructured. For more detail on CPD, please see the CPD Guideline Document.
