2014 Conference News


Thank you one and all for making sacra 2014 conference the success it was:

From the SACRA Chair and the whole of the EXCO as well as the conference organizing team, we would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks to you for your very active participation in our recent conference at the Bytes conference center in Midrand. If you were there you do not need us to tell you about the incredible two day experience. If you could not make it, please make some time to visit the SACRA website and have a look at the presentations as well as the pictures from the event, which will give you a flavour of what you missed.

The delegates from the department of health addressed most of the burning issues we have ongoing within the industry. Those will be put together and added to the list of “Frequently Asked Questions” and made available to you once agreed with the department. We are happy that those who attended expressed great satisfaction with the proceedings and the superb, efficient and professional manner in which the conference was organised.

We have no doubt that the conference would not have been the success that it was without your presence. Please continue to engage and take our country to a different level.
