Introduction – National President – Shamima Gaibie

Towards the end of last year, the national committee of SASLAW met to discuss the structure of the Society and whether the vision and activities of the Society could still be achieved by the old structure. It was the unanimous view of the National Committee that a new structure should be adopted in light of several factors, including but not limited to: the growth in membership; the numerous activities that have been undertaken and will continue to be undertaken by SASLAW; the relevance of the Society in these changing times, and especially the role that it can continue to play in shaping policy and legislation. In light of these discussions, the National Committee approved the structure below.
